Backyard Obstacle Course Ideas

If you’re looking for an activity for this last stretch of the school holidays, I put together an obstacle course for a HBF Play Report publication focusing on active, healthy kids. It’s jam packed full of heaps of good ideas, recipe and activities from various of health experts, writers and bloggers. Just click the image below for the ebook. I’m on page 33.

I designed the course to be achievable in even a small backyard, and this is what it looks like from concept to real life. You can use a lot of materials already in the home, and I’ve included heaps of variations if you don’t have these particular items.
