Rollerblades – This is another great idea to help get children some outside activity. Rollerblades can be used to just move around or to help develop coordination for a variety of sports, including hockey. Packages that come with elbow and knee pads can be found in this price range. Be sure to use a bike helmet when rollerblading as well.
