You can go on an imaginary bear hunt no matter where you are! Swish, splash, and squelch along with the story, and then make your own bear hunt obstacle course in your backyard using materials you can find in your home.
1) It’s time to go on a bear hunt! Create an obstacle course using items you can find in your home and backyard. Try and see how many of these movements you can get into your obstacle course:
Ideas for your obstacle course:
Hula Hoops – Use these to jump from hoop to hoop, roll from one spot in the course to another, or to hula-hoop to the next activity!
Ladder – Jump between the rungs of the ladder while it is lying on the ground
Frisbees – These can be used as stepping-stones or markers to run or hop to
Hose – Use to jump over or make a balancing line on the ground
Balls – Bounce, roll, and throw your way between different points in the obstacle course
Playground – Swing and climb your way from one side to another without touching the ground!
Get creative with your obstacle course! The sky is the limit. You can use anything you can think of to challenge your body.
