What sort of exercises can I do with my 4 year old?

I'd like to start being a better role model for my kids and would really like to have a light routine that we (for now, just my four year old, the one year old is a little young to join in) do together. He's a pretty active kid already, and we do go on walks frequently, play in the park, etc., so I'm mainly thinking of something to do in the morning after breakfast. Jumping jacks, stretches and that sort of thing. The problem is, I've never done that sort of thing, and have no idea how to get started.
A couple of restrictions: my knees can be a little iffy sometime so keeping things easier on them in general would be best, and I have tendonitis in one wrist, anything that put too much stress on the wrists is out. We limit time in front of the TV screen, so exercise videos are also out.
