These ideas can be printed out and the activities done in the home (or outside) to stimulate your childs learning.
On a day when you can't get outside it can be challenging to find acceptable ways for children to use their energy. One way can be to build a confidence course indoors.
A different spin on a confidence course
At ground level set up a confidence course in your back yard with equipment you have around the home such as outside chairs, buckets, pieces of timber, cardboard boxes and any other equipment that is safe. Children have to follow the course walking on or over the objects.
This is a great outdoor game, but if you have room it can be done indoors. Involve all the family to make it fun and more interesting.
