Picnic blanket, cushions, low plastic bins or boxes

Toddlers love to climb and clamber over things, so an outdoor obstacle course can be great fun! Set up your course with the boxes or bins about a foot apart so they can zigzag between them. Scatter the cushions like stepping stones and drape the blanket over garden chairs for them to crawl under. Say “go!” when you’re ready to start and cheer your toddler along, giving them support if they’re unstable.

This is a great activity for improving their coordination and wearing them out!
