If you are keen to stay at home and still be entertained then building an obstacle course can be great fun. My children loved building one for the bicycles. Here are some ideas #Jozimom, Tracey shared.
For the little ones – like toddlers and pre-schoolers
Make an exciting obstacle course for your little one to move through. Use your cushions, pillows, soft blankets and mats for him to walk or crawl “over”. Find obstacles to crawl or duck “under” such as chairs or tables. They will love going “through” boxes (open at each end), tunnels, duvet covers (that have openings on either side) and even your legs.
Take your little one’s hand (if walking) or encourage him to crawl after you and show him how to weave his way between the objects.
Then encourage them to try it on their own. They may need prompting to avoid touching the objects and you may need to do it several times with him first.
A big “Hooray!” at the end should encourage him to try it again and again.

For older children
Take the obstacle course outside and use old pieces of wood, boxes, buckets and garden chairs — anything that can be jumped over, under or around. Tell the children to time each other around the course.
