Today’s Play-Based Challenge: Make an Indoor Obstacle Course.
Your go-to for infusing energy into a midday slump!
Choose an area of your home with plenty of room to move. Begin by giving your child a simple instruction, e.g., “Crawl under your Balance Board!” or “Jump over this pillow!” or “Hop along your Balance Beam!” Gradually add more instructions until your child successfully completes a string of 5-8 directives. While your child plays, they’ll be building motor skills, body awareness, and memory the entire time!
Perfect for: Foundations, Motor Skills, Play, Spatial Recognition
Why it Matters: Not only are obstacle courses the perfect way to fend off a stir-crazy morning indoors, but they’re also genius shortcuts for building motor skills and body awareness while engaging memory. They’re a total trifecta of enriched learning in your very own living room!
We are sure you’re going to LOVE this! If you have any questions concerns, or have any other ideas that you’d like to try with your kids, leave them below, and we’ll try to make something fun out of it!
