Bean Bags - An alternative to store bought bean bags could be tennis balls, any small ball, or even as simple as a pair of socks in a ball shape.
Jump Rope - An alternative to a store bought rope could be a project to use your own rope, then you can make handles out of duct tape or electrical tape.
Hula Hoops (s) - Unfortunately there is no real alternative for a hula hoop. These can generally be picked up at a store for around $10
Playground Balls - Alternatives for this can be a basketball, soccer ball, or volleyball
Cones - Alternative can be a box, a bucket, or even a rock
Measuring Tape - These can be bought for as little as $5
Stop Watch - You can use you watch, possibly your cell phone, or these can buy one at the store.
Exercise Mat- This is optional and each individual needs to assess the area they will be doing the activity in to determine the need for this item.
Stepping Blocks - When you are inside you can use a simple piece of paper or newspaper, outdoors you can use a piece of carget or a small piece of plywood.
