This activity is all about moving and maybe getting dizzy!
Have a look at what Mrs Horscroft was getting up to with her family on a hill in one of our gorgeous parks…
Make your own Obstacle Course!
- Pick a space in which to play (inside, outside, or both).
- Set up a “course” or lots of physical challenges to get from “here to there.”
- Include each of the following:
|1 Something to go over (e.g piece of wood, box, couch, pillow mountain, stack of books, bucket)|
2 Something to walk along (e.g. coil of rope, stretched out ribbon, strip of tape, row of pillows, line of coins, line of rocks)
|3 Something to go under (e.g. table, low tree branch, bush, blanket or sheet draped over two objects, a tunnel made of boxes or sticks)|
|4 Something to balance on (stack of books, one foot, a log, an uneven rock, two branches in a cross shape, broom handle)|
5 Something you have to get into a container (e.g. ball into a pan, pebbles into a box, stuffed animal into a basket, a smaller box into a bigger box, a rock inside a circle made of twigs)
|6 Don’t forget to use different ways to move from here to there (e.g. stamp, jump, spin, roll, kick, crawl, hop, tiptoe, “fly,” lunge)|
Now challenge yourself and other people to have a go!
