Summer Bucket List {Paper Streamer Obstacle Course}

Let's see how we're doing on the list shall we?
  1. Glow in the dark sticks in the bathtub. This one is for Ben although somehow I think the kid inside of J might also want to do this.
  2. Go camping. Even if it's in our own backyard.
  3. Have a picnic. This one may need to be indoors if it doesn't get below 100 soon.
  4. Make an obstacle course out of paper streamers.
  5. Fly a kite.
  6. Paint with ice cubes.
  7. Have a spray water bottle fight.
  8. Go on a picture scavenger hunt.
  9. Go fishing.
  10. Relax. Let Ben stay up a little later. Enjoy quality time as a family.

Quite a few things are crossed off and we have a few more to go. I'm offically crossing off #10, but we'll continue to do this of course:)

The latest item to be tackled on our list was the Paper Streamer Obstacle Course. When I told J about this he seemed to think Ben would think it was lame. Boy was he wrong.

To create the obstacle course all I needed to buy was paper streamers. I made start and finish signs and got to streaming. I tried to hang the streamers so that Ben had to go over some and under some.
I set the course up while J gave Ben a bath. Ben was so excited he didn't even want to put his pajamas on. Luckily I convinced him it would only take a second or else you would have seen lots of naked bum pictures.

And he's off...

This was such a fun activity and Ben must have gone through it about 20 times. Whose lame now...:)
