Let's make an obstacle course
What you need
A sheet, movable household items to crawl and climb over and under, e.g. stool, cushions, sheet/scarf, paper/card for stepping stones, cardboard box
Where to find it
Up to 12 months
Place objects around the room or garden, varying the height and the distance between them, and encourage children to crawl under and over, climb over and through them.
Let children choose the obstacles, and make the course together. As they become more agile, add low jumps, commando-style crawling, objects to balance on. Keep it safe, helping children find their own agility level.
And as they grow older...
Children will be increasingly creative, building more challenging obstacles.
Look for a park near you, or spend time in the garden if you have one
Make your own 'instruments', play some music, and dance and sing along!
