Obstacle Course | CMSMatHome


It’s time for a Toddler Wednesday with #CMSMatHome!

Gather some chairs, stools, scarves, streamers, tape, pillows, cushions… and anything else that resembles good building material. Find a good spot and start creating your obstacle course.

As you work your way through the obstacle course, you can practice words like up, down, under, and around.
