Build an Indoor Obstacle Course
Is Dad the quickest one in the house? There’s only one way to find out. Time for an indoor obstacle course! Your course can be as simple or wild as you like. Use these indoor obstacle course ideas to get started:
- Tunnel Crawl
Rig up a bootcamp-style tunnel crawl using some blankets or bedsheets. Just arrange some boxes or chairs and drape the blankets over them. Racers will have to crawl on hand and knees (or stomach, if they’re Dad) to make it through!
- Cushion Hop
In a safe, open area place several cushions within jumping distance between a start and finish line. To make things tougher for Dad, he should jump with his feet together! And don’t forget – the floor is lava!
- Laundry Basket Sock Toss
Every obstacle course needs a skill station! For this one, prop up an empty laundry basket a short distance from your throwing line (marked with tape or the edge of a rug, etc.). Beforehand, ball up 5-6 pairs of socks and have them ready next to the throwing line. Participants toss the socks one at a time – one sock in the laundry basket equals one point!
