Raking leaves can be a lot of fun! It is a great way to interact with friends and family. It makes the front yard look tidy. You can pile the leaves into those fun little orange pumpkin trash bags to decorate your yard for Halloween. Make a pile the leaves and jump into that pile, and then toss the leaves around just to pile them up again. But have you ever thought that you just might be getting exercise? Well, you are. It might not be high endurance, but you will definitely be burning some calories. A 150 lb person will roughly burn 307 kcal per hour with raking leaves. That is pretty exciting!
