In the age of pinteresting (can that be a verb?), I'm sure posting Tips and Tricks on an ordinary ole blog is quite pointless. Who knows? I've completely steered clear of pinterest. Here's an easy idea for some serious family fun, requiring little to no prep and zero money spent. I've posted about this idea before. But because it is a family favorite around here, I decided to share again.
And what's fun with two kids surely is MORE fun with six right?
So, here's an update to an old favorite...the Obstacle course. Make your own stations, inside or outside and let the kids help come up with ideas for "obstacles" using things you find in the house or garage.
Here is ours from a windy February afternoon when there were six munchkins to entertain.
Everyone line up at the start
And divide into teams of two for completing the course. On your mark, get set...
At number THREE, you will have worked up a sweat- stop for a water break, guarded by baby June and friends.
Watch out for the lava cracks at number FOUR. Hop, skip and jump over the danger zones.
A fun afternoon indeed! Try it at home and let us know about some of your favorite obstacles.
