Gross Motor Obstacle Course Activities
We love making backyard obstacle courses. I set them up on a regular basis for my boys, and occasionally I set them up for our weekly play dates. One of our all time favorite obstacle courses was our pool noodle obstacle course. Obstacle courses make for great gross motor activities, and they are so much fun! I got creative with this obstacle course and pulled out a few different items.

The course started with children crawling through a tunnel. Next they hopped over hurdles then ducked under a pair of my husband's Burro Brands Sawhorses. The hurdles were made using jump ropes tied to paint cans.
The children walked across Stepping Domes that I set up in a snake pattern. These are a fantastic tool for balance and core strengthening.
After the domes I put out a few pool noodles for the kids to hop over.
