Children enjoy creative physical activities. With an outdoor obstacle course, their imagination can run wild when designing and choosing obstacles, while developing their gross and fine motor skills.
- Large empty cardboard boxes
- Old car/motorbike tyres
- A piece of rope or cord (at least several meters)
- Climbing frame (or a small ladder)
- Balance beam/plank
- Old sheets
You can open both ends of boxes for children to crawl through. Lay out the tyres so the children can step or jump into them. The rope can be laid on the ground for the children to walk along or skip over (for older children you can have it at a small height, such as 20-30cm). Place the climbing frame, old sheets and the beam anywhere along the course.
Make sure children are supervised at all times whilst completing the obstacle course.
