An indoor obstacle course can include anything you think is safe for indoors. When we design our courses I like to include some physical things and some thinking things.
In this course, we had to:
Put the coffee on to boil
Jump five times across the rug
Draw a circle on the train table
Vrroooom the cars across the floor
Spin in the Bilibo
Jump from one tape line to the next
Match the animal pairsLittle Lady even made it through this course with her big brother's help but her video is about five minutes long because of all the coaxing and because of her need to spin in the Bilibo about seven times around! I have made shorter obstacle courses for her involving only a few tasks that she can do on her own.
We don't really time our races because for now, the fun is in the doing. Mini Me likes to do these courses over and over again and he's wonderful at thinking of new tasks.
Other ideas for indoor obstacle courses could include:
Using foam letters to spell out a word
Writing his or her name
Anything involving pool noodles (we love those)
Digging through a pile of something (maybe colored pasta) to find one item
Putting on or taking off an article of dress up clothing
Driving a remote control car from point A to point B
.... it is truly endless. It seems that we are constantly doing obstacle courses yet rarely repeat activities.
What tasks do you include on an indoor obstacle course?
