Balance beam

Balancing beam is easier to set up than you think. All you need is some colored sticky tape, and you’re good to play for hours.


You will need:

1. Colored mask tape (multiple colors for more fun)
2. Space to play

How to:

1. Clear some space in a room and clean the floor.
2. Stick the length of the tape to create straight or curved lines to walk on.
3. You can use multiple colors and have unique rules for how the child can walk on them. For example, if the tape is blue, the kid has to walk with one hand on his head, or if it is green, he has to limp the stretch.
4. The child has to follow the rules and walk only on the tape and not on open land! If he does, he’s out.
5. The child who walks the length of the tape without stepping on the bare floor wins.

Quick tip:

You can make different variations of this game by using multiple colored masking tapes and creating different patterns. You can also make it more interesting by making the child walk backward.
