This obstacle course helps in providing light proprioceptive input through lifting and carrying and through raising and lowering the body. In addition, the child is working on improving body awareness.
Place towels, sunscreen, hat, ball, bucket, and pail & shovel at one end of the room, or play area.
Place the beach bag/basket on the other end.
Using the tape, mark a trail from the items to the beach bag.
Place the chair, step stool, and pillows (covered with the blanket) along the trail you marked.
Ask the child to transfer one item at a time and place it in the beach bag, following the trail, by crawling under the chair, walking up and down the step-stool (you can also put more than one and have the child go up and down several times), and walking on the blanket-covered pillows.
