This is a repost from 2/1/2012--Have a great weekend! We still love obstacle courses, and just did one yesterday, and today she is creating one with a set clear Geometrics. she is using them to create castles and castle doors for cars to drive around in. Our favorite courses are outside though... where she can use all sorts of found objects to create tons of new things to twirl around, in her tutu or blue jeans.... my adorable wild Bear!
We love obstacle courses, ok maybe we is a strong word. Bear loves obstacle courses. It serves an educational purpose as well and it's really easy for you to create your own, even inside in a small space and with just a little imagination.
Some other options we will do when we do it again:
- Traffic cones (we have multicolored ones that I bought at a party store) but you could even save cans and then use them. You could even paint them bright colors with craft paint. I just didn't feel like going and digging them out, but I will soon.
- Have the child turn directions while doing the course as well. think "Simon Says." Our version is "Mommy Says" *grin*
