Tape maze!

Oh. My. Goodness.  My students absolutely loved this new game, and it is so easy that we may just make it part of our regular rotation. All you have to do is tear long pieces of masking tape and place them at varying levels across a hallway (if you don’t have a hallway I’m sure that you could set up some chairs that would work too).  Then the children have to get through the tape without getting stuck to it.

My kiddos pretended to be spies, they didn’t want to get caught by the “laser tape.” They rolled underneath some strips, tiptoed over others, and stretched to get over some that they probably should’ve gone under. This is a great activity to practice balance, coordination, gross motor skills, and self-regulation, which is exactly what we need since we still can’t quite get outside to play every day.
