0-3 minutes
Time required
5-10 minutes
How to Play
This activity can be done either indoors or outdoors. Ask your child to be ‘the leader’ and take you through some obstacles, going under, over, around, or through objects.
Some Tips
If more than one child is playing, take turns being the leader.
Make it Easier
Think about possible activities ahead of time and suggest these to your child: “You could lead us around that slide, over those flowers, and under the tree.”
Make it Harder
Rather than just walking through the obstacles, suggest running, changing direction, starting and stopping, hopping, etc.
