OM Easter Fest with Mrs Owen

by Mrs. Owen


I love to make a circuit in the garden using toys and equipment. Watch the video for some ideas. I have a competition with my family. Who do you think will win – me, my husband or grandma?


Film your own obstacle course and see how many circuits (loops of the course) you can do. Time each lap and see if you can improve day by day.


I hope you enjoy the video and have fun.
