As a parent, it's important to balance screen use and physical activity to keep kids healthy. For those times when you can't be outside, screens can sometimes help get kids moving. So follow their motionless media with a marathon of running, jumping, and, most important, dancing! These active picks will have your kid putting down the controller and picking up the pace with titles that perfectly blend fun and fitness. For more information on how to properly incorporate exercise into your child's electronic games, be sure to check out our Apps That Inspire Kids to Play Outside.
