Getting to share my love for the outdoors and fitness with my family is really special to me. Not to mention it’s a great way to spend quality time with your kids and burn off some of their energy! My future granddaughter really soaks it up!
This activity was hit! It’s a combination of hopscotch and an obstacle course.
All you need is some sidewalk chalk, a pinch of creativity and get ready for some FUN!
Twirl (pick a random #, i.e. 5x)
Touch your toes (3x)
Happy Dance (I traced her feet for her to do a little jiggy on)
Spidy crawl (I drew small triangles for her to put her feet and hands on)
Roar (I drew a lion)
BE HAPPY (a smiley face) — then jump in the pool!!
Pattern #2 (she came up with this one by herself!)
Jump 3x (she drew a box)
Windmill 2x (rectangle)
10 seconds running fast (triangle)
BEAR You tiful (blow a kiss) — then jump in the pool!!
We each took turns being the “coach.”
After doing each other’s obstacle courses a handful of times we played some volleyball and worked on treading water. Needless to say, when I was ready to get out of the pool, she was too;) I hope you and your family have as much fun as we did! Share in the comments below the obstacle course you and your kids put together. 🙂
