Obstacle Course

I’d love to say we get outside lots still in the winter, but the truth is we all like the cosy warmth of our house! However, I’m trying to encourage the boys out of the house where I can. Rupert loved this garden obstacle course I made for him. They’re so good for developing spatial awareness, balance skills and problem solving. So why not follow the steps below to make your own this week?⁠ ⁠ 1. Scout your garden for objects to use, these could be sticks, bricks, paving slabs, sturdy plant pots, pieces of cardboard, rocks, logs, rope, bikes, slides, garden chairs, buckets etc etc⁠ ⁠ 2. Ask your kids what order to put the obstacles, get them involved!⁠ ⁠ 3. Get them to try it out, they’ll love to see you try it too. ⁠ ⁠ 4. Rearrange it, time them, make some rules they have to follow...literally hours of fun!⁠ ⁠ Let me know if you have a go 🙂
