Toddler obstacle course - ONE, TWO, FWEE!

In an effort to curb spending and waste, I've been trying to be more creative when it comes to reusing household objects to keep Nate busy.  The problem with being a non-toxic freak is that a lot of the ideas I read about (like in the The Toddler's Busy Book: 365 Creative Games and Activities to Keep Your 1 1/2- to 3-Year-Old Busy -which I love) involve the reuse of plastic items that I don't particularly want Nate playing with. It's really a shame, because cheap vodka bottles make awesome musical shakers.

Nate is a big fan of jumping (and running, climbing ...and somersaults), so I put together a complex obstacle course yesterday for Nate to expend some of his seemingly inexhaustible energy supply.  We used the following equipment:
  • one blanket, rolled up
  • a second blanket, rolled up
  • a third blanket, rolled up

The object was to jump over each blanket, without touching it. And while counting.


It was a big hit.
