That sounds like Outdoor Challenge - it has both adult and child settings, I believe, so that evens things out as well if you want to play along.

This just doesn't seem to be an issue with my kids. There are days (normally weekends) when they get more "screen time" but when school is in session they really don't have time between homework, piano, chores, and time with friends. If it looks like it's becoming a problem, then we tighten up, but we don't have a set limit. We are too ADD ourselves to enforce any kind of limit anyway.

I'm also specifically looking for games good for young autistic kids. My son's coordination isn't that great [he's 3.6 years old], but getting him to do something like clap to music or jump in time, or really simple control of a character might be a good thing.
Another rec for Mario Kart. My 6 yo loves it - took awhile but he's finally able to avoid finishing last most of the time.

Wii Music might work well for the 3.6 year old.

Yeah, my mother has Outdoor Challenge, and my girls really enjoyed that.

The problem does get to be that sometimes they'd prefer to watch me play, because I'm so much better than they are [for now]. So for the trampoline game, for example, I get to do a lot more tricks than they can manage.

Wii Nerf sounds fun. I'm very pro-gun. I need my kids to be able to kill the varmints messing round about our area. And varmint's good eatin! Mmm mm. Gotta start them somewhere, and Nerf sounds like a good place to do it....

Yes, "Active Life: Outdoor Challenge" is the game I was thinking of.

"Out door challenge" has some nice background music? There is a review, but I could not
see much. I am just trying to decide DDR or this for this month game.
