Today I didn't really feel like going outside, but my daughter still had energy to burn. So I made an obstacle course in our living room. First she had to climb a mountain of pillows. Once she reached the top, she could wiggle her way onto two kitchen chairs I had set up facing each other. Once on the chairs, she sat down, and I sang, "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great...." (she prepared herself) "FALL!" and she scooted off of the chairs and onto a pillow on the floor. Next came Daddy's trunk, which served as a step onto the next pair of kitchen chairs, where we did Humpty Dumpty again. Then, having successfully navigated the path, I had her run, run, run back to the beginning to do it again. The only problem with this activity was that, as she got creative with it, she wanted to add other obstacles that I didn't feel like adding. I was pretty low energy today. If I had felt better, that probably wouldn't have been that big of a deal. As it was, she LOVED the activity.
