Indoor obstacle course cards for the summer and beyond (Time to Pee printable)

Sharing is caring!

We KNOW that you want to be getting out and about this summer, and beyond. Sometimes though, the weather lets us down, but we still need ideas for the kids to get them active; so we have created some indoor obstacle course cards for the summer and beyond for you to print out and use with your children either at home or in the classroom. These are another exclusive set of printables for those that are in our FREE Time to Pee club, so sign up and then sign in as soon as you can so you can download them for all the inspiration for need for the week when the weather isn’t quite as you want it to be. Alternatively, you can use them outside of course – but they are designed to get kids active indoors.

These indoor obstacle course cards consist of a couple of pages with inspiration for your course, to get your kids to exercise – these are the ideas that we have for you:

Indoor obstacle course cards for kids

There are a couple of sheets with ideas for the obstacle course included with this – they cover ways to move between obstacle course stations in a fun way for the kids!

  1. Walk to station 2 like a crab,
  2. Jiggle like a jellyfish,
  3. Relax – you have had a busy day,
  4. Chomp your way (like a shark) to the next station,
  5. Gallop like a seahorse to the next card,
  6. Bounce off to the next station,
  7. Dive in to get to station 8,
  8. Roll like an ocean wave to get to the next card,
  9. Quench your thirst with a cool drink to help the summer heat,
  10. Clap like a seal as you are nearly there,
  11. Swim through to get to the final station, and finally
  12. You have finished. Do the happy dance because you are DONE!

We have designed this indoor obstacle course with 12 stations in mind, but because of the lanugauge we have used on some of the cards, you are able to mix and match a little.

We have also provided you with ALL the designs, without numbers and blank cards, so that you can add your own ideas to the stations and extend the activity if you would like to do this.

More cards = more fun!

We know you like to see the cards beforehand, so here you go – these are the sheets that you will get within this download.

First set of 6 ideas for indoor obstacle course

Lots of lovely bright and fun images and colours for the summer; we like the seahorse the most from this sheet. Which is your favourite?

Indoor summer obstacle course: Final 6 ideas

A lot of the ideas are relevant to the seaside and the ocean; this is a regular summer theme, but also provides lots of opportunities for additional learning for the children, as well as great actions and activities during the pretend play between the stations.

Why not couple the obstacle course with some of the other seaside themed activities that we have on the site include our ocean themed CVCs games, and our seaside colouring sheets?

We have also got some summer activity ideas in our shop that are worth checking out too.
