Indoor Balance Beam

ages 2-4



Activity Detail

If you have a little gymnast in your house, use this activity to get him or her off the furniture and onto a safer surface. Grab a bunch of throw pillows from around the house and line them up on the floor. Let your child walk across the pillows, as though they're a balance beam.

With all boys in the house, the pillows turn into weapons.

Another fun game with throw pillows (if you don't mind them being stepped on) is "hot lava". Pretend the floor is hot lava, so your child has to jump from pillow to pillow to avoid falling in and getting burned.

For older toddlers, give them challenges to perform on the "beam". Ask them to see if they can stand on one foot or walk backward on the beam.
