Driveway Obstacle Course

I’ve been toying with the idea of making an obstacle course for the girls all summer. But, for one reason or the other, it never happened.Perhaps it was a lack of ideas or maybe just a bit of summer laziness, but nonetheless, it never happened.

That is, until inspiration struck and I realized “hey, I can make an obstacle course with just a bit of sidewalk chalk!”

I got out all the sidewalk chalk and took over our driveway. First, I started with straight lines that the girls had to jump over. They then moved on to a curvy line they had to walk (or run) along.

Next up were numbered circles, 1-5. They had to jump from one to the other in numerical order (or at least the preschooler did, the toddler just jumped as she pleased).From there, they moved on to the “tightrope,” which they had to carefully walk across. Then, they encountered triangles which they had to jump from one to the other.

Next up was the spiral. They started from the outside and followed the lines to the middle.Then, they had to walk (or run) along the zig-zag line.

At the end was a series of squiggly lines to jump over, they they followed an arrow back to the beginning.

We had lots of running, giggling, jumping and sometimes losing our balance.Best of all, we had fun. The best part for me was that the possibilities are endless and the best part for the girls was that it was a lot of fun!
