Print these cards and create a fun Summer Camp obstacle course or relay race for the kids
One of the easiest boredom busters to throw together is an obstacle course or a relay race. The kids love it, and it doesn’t take much time or effort to organize the activity. It will get them moving, burning off some energy and working on their gross motor skills.
We’ve put together a series of themes obstacle course cards for you to print off and the latest in the bundle is our Summer Camp Obstacle Course Printable Cards. These fun cards are Summer Themed and perfect to use at home for your school end of the year field day!

An Indoor obstacle course can be just as fun and are a perfect boredom buster when the weather isn’t cooperating to go outside. Sometimes it can be too hot to go outside in the summer or a tropical storm might be drenching you – Bring the fun inside and add a few pillows and household items so they can maneuver their way through, crawling and hopping along.
GROSS MOTOR ACTIVITY
Use these cards to create an obstacle course, the cards each have a gross motor activities on them to complete before moving on to the next.
All you need to do is print the cards and set them out around the yard, on the field at school, or even in the living room if you can’t go outdoors.
If you are planning on using these multiple times I would definitely recommend laminating them, especially if you plan to use them outdoors.
Once you have printed your cards, cut them out (and laminate them if you would like) and place them in your obstacle course. You can use the cards alone with the gross motor activities or you can add physical obstacles like a rope to jump over or tunnel to crawl through between cards.
Have the children line up at card number one and take turns going through the course. This can also be done in pairs, with the children working together to get through the course.
I also like to laminate all of my kids activity cards. You can find my laminator here:
