Astronaut Obstacle Course

Gross motor activities are an essential component to any preschool curriculum. These activities build skills that aid the development of young children, and prepare them for elementary school. Because your little ones are active and often on-the-go, it is important that they learn how to control their bodies.

Comfort with gross motor skills means that your child is aware of his personal space. By controlling his body, he can respect other people’s personal spaces as well. For this activity, we learned that being an astronaut creates intense physical demands on the body.

Because of this, potential astronauts undergo rigorous training to prepare them for the challenges of space travel. Using yellow rope and our bodies, we participated in an astronaut obstacle course! This enabled your child to practice accessing both sides of the body simultaneously to get through the rope maze.
