For example, you will try to roll all ones, twos, threes, fours, fives, and sixes. If you roll all five of one number you will get a Yahtzee giving you 50 points! You will also want to try for three or four of a kind, full house, small and large straight, and a chance when you have nothing else to keep.

Each person gets three rolls, and with each roll, they can keep what they want and roll the rest or throw them all back in and try again. The last roll counts because you will have to take a score, so make sure it’s a good one!

6 Reasons Why Kids Should Join Fitness Classes

Kids love physical activities. Given the chance to do whatever they want, they would rather run around and play. It is natural for kids to be energetic and playful. There are kids though who are more socially awkward. They would rather stay home watching TV instead of playing with friends. There are other kids who prefer to read books instead of doing physical activities.

As parents, it is important that you help your child gear towards holistic development. At a young age, kids will start to show their skills and talents. You have to be supportive in whatever it is that they want to achieve. At the same time, you also need to teach them to diversify their activities. If they show no interest in physical activities, you need to help them understand its importance. Physical activity can come in many forms – one of which is through enrollment in structured youth fitness classes. These classes allow for same age interaction, while incorporating energy-demanding movements that are fun for kids to perform.

You don’t have to worry that they are too young to join these classes. Your kids will find them easy and enjoyable. To back this up – here are 5 great reasons why kids would benefit a lot from joining fitness classes.

1. Being Physically Active Strengthens the Heart

Our hearts are considered as muscles. Just like other muscles in the body, the heart also has to do exercises for optimal performance. By doing physical activities, the heart becomes stronger and more resilient. A healthy heart could easily reduce the risk of heart diseases. In the US, heart ailments are among the main causes of death even at childhood. Exercising also helps remove the excess cholesterol and fat on the child’s blood. It makes the wall of the blood vessels more flexible. For kids who tend to eat anything they want, the absence of physical activities is detrimental.

2. Exercise helps fight childhood obesity

In the US, almost 17% of children between 2 to 19 years old are considered obese. Those who suffer from obesity may develop chronic illnesses as they grow older. Diabetes and heart diseases are among the most common problems. One of the reasons why kids suffer from obesity is because they lack physical activities. When someone is not engaged in physical activities, the body does not burn calories. Worse, those who eat a lot without exercising will keep piling up calories in the body, leading to obesity. Regular exercise plus a balanced diet could be the best formula to fight obesity.

3. The bones become stronger

Kids are at a point in their lives where the bones are still developing. They need to exercise to ensure that bones grow well. When exercised, the muscles tend to be stronger. The same thing is true for bones. Those who don’t engage in physical activities may suffer from weakened bones that could lead to serious conditions like osteoporosis as they grow older.

4. Fitness classes help enhance emotional wellness

Kids also get stressed. You might not notice it because they laugh all the time and they are not exposed to problems as big as adults face. The truth is that they also get stressed when faced with different challenges each day. Exercise helps make them feel more calm and relaxed. The body releases endorphin after exercising which helps them cope up with their emotional problems. Experiencing weight loss and staying fit may also boost the emotional wellness of children.

5. Exercising encourages brain activity

With exercise, the brain works at an optimum capacity. It helps in multiplying the nerve cells and strengthening the interconnections. In short, kids who exercise become smarter. There is greater flow of blood to the brain. There is also improved development of neurons. They also become more focused in school. During mid-afternoon, most kids feel sleepy and tired. Those who do regular exercise remain energetic.

6. It redirects their attention to a more meaningful activity

When kids are not exercising, perhaps they are busy watching their favorite shows or surfing the net. Being addicted to these devices may also affect their sleep. There is nothing wrong in giving them time to play video games or surf the net. The time should be limited though. If they are more engaged in physical activities, they would not have time for less helpful activities.

In short, you have to consider enrolling your kids in structured fitness classes. They will definitely enjoy doing physical activities. These benefits are just a bonus.

What are the Best Obstacle Course Shoes?

Running is one of the purest forms of exercise you can perform.  When you run, you are using the body’s natural movements to propel yourself forward at high speeds —  it is exhilarating, rewarding, and challenging.

Obstacle course running makes the act of running even more exciting!  It involves running over all kinds of terrain, climbing obstacles, and jumping over barricades.  Obstacle running is a form of running that feels much more enjoyable than running in circles on a track or dodging traffic as you jog in the city.

However, obstacle course running is also an extremely demanding form of running that requires a lot of skill.  It also requires better equipment, including a great pair of running shoes that are suited to many different types of terrain including sand, dirt, rocks, cement, and mud.

This guide will offer some tips for buying the right pair of running shoes before highlighting 5 of the best obstacle course shoes on the market!

Choosing the Right Obstacle Course Shoes

Get shoes made for running.

Find a shoe that is right for your foot

Only wear shoes that feel comfortable immediately

Look for shoes with a tight heel fit and room at the front

Look for shoes that address any issues you have

Don’t spend too much — or too little!

Get a pair that is slightly larger than you would normally wear

Choose shoes with a tough and resilient upper

Don’t worry about the looks of the shoe

Light shoes do work best

Yard Dice Yahtzee


Trademark Innovations Giant Wood Yard Dice with Carry Bag, 3.5″

  • Comes with 6 dice in a jute drawstring bag
  • Each die measures 3.5″ square
  • The dice come in an attractive natural stain

Playing outdoor Yahtzee with yard dice really takes this classic game to new levels of fun and excitement. You can play alone or in large groups.  We have all probably played Yahtzee many times in our lives, but we will go over the general rules again. For ease of scoring and following rules, I recommend getting official Yahtzee score cards and rules. The object of the game is to obtain the highest score possible by throwing five dice. The game has thirteen rounds. You roll the dice in each round and choose your score for one of the thirteen different categories.  Choose one score per category depending on what you roll. Up to three rolls per round are allowed and you can keep or re roll as many of the dice as you choose. After three rolls you must choose your score for a given category. There are two different categories for scoring, an upper and lower section. For the upper section your score is the value of the specified die face for numbers one through six. For example, if you roll 3-4-3-6-2 and choose the three category, your score would be 2 because you rolled two different dice with three on the face. The lower section of scoring is either a set amount or zero based on whether you meet the requirements.  These categories are three and four of kind. If you roll this you get the total if the dice. The next category is small straight (30 points) or large straight (40 points).  A full house is next and is when you roll a 3 and 2 of a kind together. Full house scores 25 points.  The last category is a 5 of kind or Yahtzee which scores 50 points and 100 for an additional Yahtzee. After filling all categories the high score wins.

Beat That Yard Dice Game


Cardinal 5 Giant Wood Dice Giant Game

  • Made from solid wood
  • 5 Wooden Dice – 3.5″ x 3.5″ x 3.5″
  • Numbers are heat branded directly into the wood

Beat That is a simple and great game for kids of all ages. It is fun and improves strategic thinking and recognizing different numbers. You can roll anywhere from two to six dice. Using more dice makes the game a little more complicated for older children. The object is to roll the dice and arrange them in the highest number combination possible. For example, if you decide to throw three dice per round and get a 3-6-9, you would add that up to the highest total of 963. Once the child has decided on what they think the highest number combination is the challenge the next player to “beat that” and continue with game in the same manner. The game is played in rounds and a winner is chosen for each round. You can also add variations to the game like lowest score wins or setting a goal of total points that you add up per round until the number is achieved. Adding prizes for the winner of each round will keep the kids involved and give everyone plenty of chances to win.

These are all great games for getting started with your yard dice set. There are literally hundreds more out there. You can even get creative and make up your own yard dice games. The options are endless. Looking for some other fun yard games? Try your luck at the popular game cornhole.

Best Cornhole Boards

Cornhole is a fun, simple game that can be played by two to four players of any ages. The game consists of throwing corn-filled bags at special boards with a hole in it to score points by landing bags on the board or through the hole. The great thing about this game is that it can be played almost anywhere. If you have two people, a board (although two are recommended), bags, and a flat surface you’re ready to go.

Maybe you want to get your own board to play while tailgating or for entertainment while having a BBQ in your backyard. The good news is that acquiring the equipment you need is easy. There are many manufacturers of boards and bags, and you can choose from a ton of designs. This article will go over the best cornhole boards out there to help you decide which one is right for you. Let’s go!

Viva Sol Bean Bag Toss Game


Viva Sol 2’x4’ Bean Bag Toss Game Includes 2 Premium All-Wood Bean…

  • Premium All-Wood, Bean Bag Toss Boards – Regulation-Size (2’ x 4’)
  • Portable with Folding Legs, Nesting Boards, and Heavy-Duty Rope Handle
  • Thick Metal Legs Add Stability and Store Under the Board for Portability

The first board on our list is one that is composed of high-quality materials and an aesthetic that is sure to be loved. This offering comes with two boards, both of which are all-wood and regulation size. You also get eight bean bags, along with a carrying bag to transport them in. The boards themselves are pretty attractive with a light walnut wood used throughout.

As far as portability goes, these boards do what they need to do. The legs of the boards detach and can be stored underneath, then the boards themselves nest together to be carried by a rope handle. So, essentially, you have everything stored in between the two boards while you take them wherever you need to go. However, being all wood, they may be a bit heavy so keep that in mind if you choose to purchase this particular set.

These boards are made for outdoor use but are not entirely waterproof. It’s suggested that you store them indoors to keep them from getting weathered. It seems that with the wooden boards these will be durable and able to stand up to abuse. In addition, if you prefer a board that isn’t covered in decals, this is a beautiful choice that is likely to be loved.

PROS

  • Two-tone all wood design is high-quality and aesthetically pleasing

  • Underside of board features a pouch to store bean bags

  • Portable by virtue of rope handle, folding legs, and nesting board design

  • Regulation size board which is preferred by many players

CONS

  • This board is not waterproof, so it will need to be stored somewhere safe

GoSports is the second brand we recognize with a set that includes two boards, eight bean bags, and a carrying case. These boards are made with high strength aluminum frames, along with a water-resistant MDF (medium density fiberboard) surface. These boards come in a variety of styles, but the one we’re focused on resembles a football field. It’s green and white, with an end zone that allows for decals. That means you can get a sticker that represents your favorite team in order to customize your board. However, other designs include red and blue, original, American flag, and even a light-up edition.

These boards fold up flat and come with a carrying case with handles. In addition, these are rather lightweight and easy to carry. That said, they are a bit smaller than regulation. However, if you’re playing at home casually or bringing you board to a tailgating event, the size is actually an asset. You can easily use them in the bed of a truck and moving them from house to new location isn’t likely to be stressful.

The bags that come with the boards are made from premium duck cloth fabric with an all-weather fill. This is a type of fabric made to block the wind and avoid snagging and tearing. These bags are likely to last a long time, no matter how often you use your new corn hole boards.

PROS

  • Water resistant surface leads to higher durability

  • Customizable end zones so you can represent your favorite team

  • Includes a carrying case for easy portability

  • Fully customizable with team decals

This system is rather lightweight and has features to make it portable. The boards fold in half to transport them quickly, as well as offering two legs that fold out for play or under for storage. The bags are also lightweight but durable and made from all-weather duck cloth. You won’t need to upgrade in order to play. Just set up the boards, pull out the bags, and enjoy a game.

With the LED lights, you’ll find something new and unique in this set of boards. The lights are rings that go around the holes in the board, with 38 LEDs on each board. If you end up in a late night game and don’t want to stop, you can just stick on the lights and keep going as long as you want. It will make it easier to play when it’s dark if you don’t have other lights available.

PROS

  • Built in LED rings allow easy and fun night play

  • Comes with eight high quality, official bean bags

  • Regulation size board that can be folded for portability

  • Water resistant surface for durability and use in any weather

CONS

  • Does not include a carrying case, so one may need to be purchased

Those who want to show off their USA spirit will likely enjoy the combination of American style and USA artistry that these boards bring.
