an indoor obstacle course for cats

Who said obstacle courses are only for the outdoors?

I'm not even sure how this started.  One minute they were using the scarves to dance to music, and the next they were all working to put this together.

Someone decided that they were cats - being cats is pretty big at preschool. 

So you will have to imagine the crawling through the obstacle course to the chorus of  loud meowing.  Think of the sound of ten cats being strangled and you are just about there.

I love the possibilities for play that arise when kids are given the time, space and freedom to make the learning environment their very own.  The day takes off in directions you would never dream of.

Here are some other folk who talk of indoor obstacle courses:

Kristin from the wonderful Preschool Daze has a post about their indoor obstacle course - and her photos are so much better than mine are!

Imagination Soup has a post about an inside mountain climbing course.

Imagine Toys has a list of ideas for materials to make an indoor obstacle course in Stay Active Indoors with an Obstacle Course.
