Indoor Preschool Activities: An Invitation to Play

Updated: Feb 22, 2021

Another -35C windchill day, another day inside! For the third indoor day in a row, we needed something daring and dangerous to satisfy the thirst of our adventure crew.

We decided that an appropriate adventure for the day would be to take inspiration from one of the books on our Spring Reading List, Make Way for Ducklings and create a treacherous spring obstacle course.

Our book review for Make Way for Ducklings:

Love this book! If you have ever visited Boston (or if you haven't), the illustrations in Make Way for Ducklings will have you transported through time, on a tour of Charles Street, around Beacon Hill, and of course through the Public Garden. The book brings the sights and sounds of Boston to life, as well as highlighting springtime life for a duck family. It is great for introducing the concept of bird migration and all the challenges baby ducklings face in the big, wide world every spring!

We began construction using the Pikler Triangle (worth every penny!) and the couch cushions. First, we created remote Cushion Island, just like the island in the Boston Public Garden, except with a slide bridge entry.
