Many of our families are missing key therapies. How are you keeping bodies, hearts, and minds moving today? Consider an obstacle course inside your home! Simple activities can stretch your arms, help you balance, and connect the brain.
Here are some fun ways to create inclusive obstacle courses at home:
- Create an indoor obstacle course and see some other fun games from Kids Art & Craft at youtu.be/AtKtUKbrnkw
- Create an outdoor obstacle course using chalk like this occupational therapist: facebook.com/michele.gambrel.9/videos/10157792502277928/
- Create a safe obstacle course using a pillow, a collapsible tunnel, hula loop. If you have two children, blindfold one and have the other give verbal instructions. Great lesson in working together. More ideas at aaspeech.com/games-for-children-with-special-needs/
