Materials

Directions

First create an obstacle course. It could be indoors or outdoors, and as long or short as you like. Include objects you can climb over or under, stand on top of, walk around, or crawl through. You and your child may want to give silly names to each obstacle. Walk the route together, discussing the directions for moving around, over, under, behind, in front of, or through each obstacle.

Take turns "running" the course. The onlookers will shout encouragement, reminding the runner what to do at each obstacle, for example:

Extension

After building and completing the obstacle course, or in between rounds, kids can draw the course, label each obstacle and draw a path showing the route to follow through the course.
