Get Ready for the Games Day 2: Obstacle Course

Posted by   + Show Post

Get your kids moving and excited about competing by creating an obstacle course this weekend! Get out a watch and time each of the kids as they go through. It doesn't have to be complicated. You can make it outdoors or inside!

Looking for some ideas?

Have them go down the slide, jump rope, run through the sandbox, and sprint across the yard. Doing it indoors? Have them jump over a pillow, hop up and down, run around the couch and back to the start!

What does your obstacle course look like? Have you ever done something like this with your kids?

Fun!

Yesterday we were at the playground and their obstacle course included a complicated version of going into the big slide, climbing over a part of the set that wasn't meant for climbing, flipping over a chain ladder and racing to the other end of the park.

It's too hot to do anything outside, we'll have to do it indoors.

My son has aways made obstacle courses on his own so we had him set it  up. His father has a workout ladder and we placed some benches and stools outside and timed everyone running and jumping! They had a blast.

We start off jumping on the trampoline doing 10 different jumps (example, knees, but, back & etc) then run to the front grab the basket ball and shoot to make 3 baskets.  Then spint from mail box to corner of the street back to the back yard.

I guess going to the park and swinging, sliding, and running could count for my DS..

MY DS sets up an obstacle course when he practices soccer.  He likes to kick the ball around the obstacles to practice his footwork.

i think my son might not understand the point. Does daily trying to navigate the playroom count though?
