This summer activity can be played in the park, the beach, or in your backyard. You can
use props, actions or a combination of both. When you set-up an obstacle course it
doesn’t even have to be for a bunch of kids, one person can play this game too.
In your backyard set up stations and have the child or each child move from station to
station in a different manner. The can somersault to one, run backwards to the next, and
skip to the last one. Other methods of locomotion could include walking like a crab,
crawling on all fours, walking sideways, hopping on one foot, or any other sill movement
that can be thought of. Using this method is also a tricky way to get kids to move along
when you are out for a walk with them. Pick a marker not too far in the distance and
have them do a silly move to get to it first.
When out at the park, use the play equipment to set-up an obstacle course for the kids.
They may have to zigzag through the swings, go down the slide and then touch a tree to
win. Involve the kids and ask them what they think should be involved in the obstacle
course or race.
Equipment that can be used to make the course more challenging are jump ropes, safety
cones, different size balls, and other sporting equipment. An obstacle course is anything
that makes it trickier to get from point A to point B. You can add in a task for older kids
to develop special skills like knot tying or balancing – have them balance on one foot on
top of a log to the count of 15. If they fall off they have to start all over again.
Become a Summer Tourist
There are many activities in or around your city that you probably know all the tourists
go to, but when was the last time you went? Just because you have been there many
times before along with your children doesn’t mean they wouldn’t love to go again (and
again and again).
Take a few days during the summer break to visit attractions and destinations that you
haven’t been to in awhile. If you know that the place is going to be crowded on the
weekend or in the afternoons go on a weekday morning. The added benefit of being a
local and going to a tourist destination is that you know the ins and outs and the tricks to
get the most out of your day. Become a Summer Tourist
