  • tape, string
  • pool noodles, jump ropes
  • materials from your recycling
  • chalk
  • balloons

Here are some locomotor movements you may encourage your child to include:

  • balancing
  • jumping
  • crawling
  • hopping
  • sliding
  • leaping
  • skipping
  • Catching
  • Throwing
  • Kicking

Here are a few awesome obstacle courses made with household items. Watch these videos for inspiration!

Follow Up Questions:

  • What was the most challenging part of your obstacle course?
  • What was your favourite part of your obstacle course?
  • Who do you think should try this obstacle course? Why?
  • If you could make another obstacle course what would you do differently? What would you do the same?

Parents, please take a picture of video of your child's obstacle course and send it to your teacher through Teams or email.

Have fun!
