As I type this, it is the beginning of March. I debated even posting this snow obstacle course idea. I thought maybe I would save it for next year.

But then I realized. I was just perusing Pinterest this morning because cabin fever is REAL.

And we just had snow day number ELEVEN.

With more potential snow on the way this week.

I thought maybe you, mama who loves her kids but just wants them to calm the heck down, might need some fresh snow day activity ideas.

My kids loved these obstacle course ideas, and I hope yours will too. My 2 year old went through the course and promptly exclaimed “Me do it again!”.

Snow Obstacle Course

Materials:

– 2 sleds
– wood plank wide enough to walk across
– hula hoop
– cones
– a Tupperware container
– a spray bottle filled with colored water
– a pool noodle

Obstacles:

#1- Sleigh ride down the hill

#2- Make a snow angel

Hop off of the sled, drop down and make a snow angel.

#3- Walk over the balance beam

Make sure you have a few snowballs ready to go!

#5- Crawl through the hula hoop

#6- Maneuver around the cones

Or jump over them (or walk next to them like my two year old did).

#7- Pack snow into a container and create a snow castle

I used a simple square Tupperware container.

#8- Spray the snow castle with colored water

#9- Crawl

You can create a finish line for the crawling portion using your colored water bottle.

#10- Jump over a pool noodle hurdle

Or two or three. Remember I told you this would tire your kids out. Or again, your kids could be like my 2 year old who did a belly flop over it.

#11- Roll a snowball a few feet

Pre-roll a snowball and then have your child continue to roll it. Just think of how tired your kids will be later.

#12- Slide over the snowball

Literally have your kids slide on their bellies over the snowball.

#13- Drag sled over the finish line

Have your kids lie on their belly, and drag themselves over the finish line using their arms. Push them along if they’re too tired out by this point.

It’s too easy to just hunker in and not enjoy the outdoors, but don’t do it! Get outside and make some winter family memories with more winter family activities.

PS- Get into the fun with your kids, mama!
