Running & Jumping

OK, so the title is a little deceiving since in my small yard there isn’t really a lot of room for actual running.  However, we compensate by engaging in activities that require agility and precision.

Designing and traversing obstacle courses are favorite activities around here and the children are pros. The hoola hoops and traffic cones were reintroduced into the yard this week and the children were so excited.

First the cones were used alone

Then they combined them with other things

Of course there was the ever popular ‘no hands’ approach to the obstacle course

And ‘patterns’ from the decorator

Wonderful turn taking and follow the leader games

It has been a busy, active week outside in the yard and all I had to do was put out a few new items, stand back and take pictures.
