Lucky Leaps activity prepared

Lucky Leaps

In this DIY obstacle course, the goal is to get to the other side of the house (ahem, Green Milk Lake, that is), by only stepping on rainbow-colored safe zones. As an added challenge, use your phone’s stopwatch to see who can do it the fastest or set new “world records!”


  • Construction Paper
  • Markers
  • Tape


  1. Lay out construction paper on the floor (or on tables, chairs, and countertops if you really want to get daring). Pro Tip: Make sure to tape each piece down so nobody slips and falls. You can also use pillows or cushions, to create an even softer landing.
  2. See how long it takes for your kids to complete the course. If they fall off the safe zones, they have to start all over!
  3. As an added twist, you can make any green items or furniture in the house also count as a safe zone. If you have a green couch, they can jump on that. Or if there’s a green curtain, touching that keeps them safe, too.
  4. What’s waiting for them at the end of the course? A bowl of Lucky Charms, of course!
