What are some indoor activities I can
do with my child?

 

By Barbara Greenspan, OT, Pediatric Occupational Therapist

 

There are the obvious activities such as playing games, coloring, cooking, playing with toys and painting. But here is one that you may not have thought of— building inside-obstacle courses. This is a great way to play with your child and work on body awareness at the same time.

 

By simply using the furniture and toys in your own house you can design a great obstacle course. You can also work on helping your child to follow directions or even follow a map. Go under tables, over chairs, jump over a toy, crawl into a tent. They will have so much fun and so will you! Once they see you design a course, let them come up with their own design. You will be impressed at their ability to plan an activity for you.
