Staying active is important for all ages. Children need to stay active so that they can stay healthy and grow. Going out to play at parks might be difficult and unsafe during the pandemic and inconvenient during the winter season. Instead, you could make an obstacle course at home with items that you can easily find around. Chairs, toys, jump ropes, anything can be a part of your indoor obstacle course. Here’s an example of how you could make an indoor obstacle course.
Start off with hula hooping for 30 seconds
Skip to the next obstacle
Climb over 4 chairs
Walk backwards to the next obstacle
Jump rope 25 times
Crab walk to the next obstacle
Do 10 jumping jacks and 10 push ups
Run back to the start!
This is just one way of making an obstacle course, but there’s hundreds of other ways that you could create an indoor obstacle course with items that you have at home. If you want to, you could even extend this obstacle out into your driveway or backyard and use chalk to do hopscotch and other fun activities. Keeping children active is extremely important. So even when it’s hard to leave the house, they can still stay active with these types of indoor courses.
