Cardboard boxes - Large enough to crawl inside and over
Blankets - Any size you prefer
Skilly Spark: Ask your child to help you find your items. Now,look at all of these things we’ve gathered. What can we do with these pillows and blocks and ...? What shapes can you see? How do you think we can put them together? Once we’re done, we can play a game with what we’ve created, called an obstacle course. An obstacle is something that we have to get around, or over. Let’s do it together!
In your open space, work together to arrange your obstacle course for:
Pillows to roll across
Hula hoops to jump in and out of
Tape lines on the floor to run, walk, or crawl on
Boxes to climb in or over
Blankets to make a tunnel to crawl through
Now start going through the obstacle course. Keep on going and if your little one’s interest wanes, rearrange the course and have another go.
When it’s clear that your child is finished, then have fun putting everything away by calling out items one by one and returning them to their places.
Keep the fun going
Dress up your adventure! Add items like hats, scarves, or other accessories in your boxes or tunnels. Your child can put them on and see how it changes their course.
Play music and let it move you in silly ways as you go. If it was a fast song, try a slow one next and see how has it changed your course.
