Indoor Obstacle Course

As you design your obstacle course, keep in mind the ages, abilities, and number of children involved as well as the space you have. Make the course simple at first and change the stations as they're mastered. If you like, time the kids to see who can complete the course fastest. Below are a few ideas to get you started. Ten stations is a good number for most kids.

Directions

  1. Crawl under or over a row of chairs.
  2. Crawl under a string stretched between two chair legs.
  3. Jump into and out of a Hula-Hoop five times.
  4. Walk on a balance board.
  5. Throw a beanbag into a laundry basket.
  6. Run while balancing a beanbag on your head.
  7. Do a ring toss.
  8. Play one hole of Newspaper Golf.
  9. Ride a tricycle along a predetermined route.
  10. Somersault from one point to another.
  11. Do a handstand.
  12. Skip in place while reciting a jump rope rhyme.
  13. Do ten jumping jacks.
