Build a tunnel cubby
You don't need to buy expensive play equipment to improve your child's gross motor skills. All you need is a cubby! Just set them the challenge of building tunnels and cubby houses out of the furniture you have. A tunnel cubby provides hours of imaginative play.
What you need:
- 6 x dining room chairs
- 4 x blankets
- 1 x coffee table
Note: There are no rules! Just create your tunnel cubby out of whatever you have available.
Watch the step by step video below to find out how to make a tunnel cubby.
Create a tunnel framework by lining up the chairs and coffee table.
Throw some blankets over the top and voila! Tunnel.
- It's most exciting and challenging when you create a tunnel from one room to another.
- You can also add torches to make the game really exciting and adventurous.
- Thanks to our sister company Kidspot Australia for creating the instructional video.
