Modifiable Entertainment: Obstacle Courses

When my sister turned eleven, we had a big party with our family at my grandparents’ farm. The cousins span in age by 25 years so as my mom was planning the party, she was looking for activities that would engage everyone. A giant obstacle course including large hay bales was perfect. We had to crawl under them through a tunnel and then climb over them too! All of the cousins (and some adventurous aunts and uncles) were divided into age brackets so adults weren’t competing with children. The obstacle course was modified as needed, but entertained us all for quite awhile!
