What type of exercise is vigorous?

Anything!  Laughing is a vigorous activity.  Chasing a balloon while laughing?  Airplane running, stair climbing, basketball.
Children have a natural tendency to just run.  If you put a class of kindergarten kids in a gym and don't give them any direction they will just run...laugh...scream.  Then there will be a collision between one and a wall, or another kindie and they will cry (this is why kindies NEED direction!).

NN and IN chase balloons.  NN is counting as he plays 'keep up'.  Some running involved but a lot of motor planning and coordination as he times his hits with the balloon.  Thank you Mr. Springsteen for the soundtrack....
