Make an indoor obstacle course

We live in the "frozen tundra" and winters here can be really long, especially when it's TOO cold to go outside and burn off a little extra energy. The other day my kids were telling me how bored they were bouncing off the walls with energy. So I made them all sit on the step (ha!!!) while I made a special surprise for them.

What did we do? We did an indoor obstacle course. It was filled with items we already had in our house (making it FREE) and it was some really good fun! The kids were getting along great and helping and encouraging each other along the course.

Here is how I laid out the course for them.

It was great to see them burning off the energy! Then a few minutes later the decided to get more creative!

Here's what THEY decided the course was.

Then even later the moved things around and redesigned the whole thing. I would say all in all it was a success! We had a lot of fun!
