this week's challenge:

week 3

This week, with the help of an adult, your challenge is to test your agility on your own obstacle course. Make sure you get a parent or guardian to supervise, and they can take photos too!

1. what you will need:

Use household items or natural materials to build your obstacle course. You could use chairs from the kitchen to crawl under, cushions from the sofa to roll on top of, or a stick from the garden to step over.

An obstacle course in your home or backyard that will test your agility. Include obstacles that you need to jump over, crawl under, or run around, and you could try to safely complete the course in the fastest time you can. You could even dress as a cat to help your feel more agile!

did you know?

 Did you know why cats are so agile? How they’re able to jump very high and run fast without making much noise? They can do this naturally, and it’s because before they were pets, cats were wild animals, and what we call ‘ambush predators.’ To catch food, they had to get as close to their prey as possible - without them knowing - before pouncing or chasing them.  

3. how to complete the challenge:

When you’re ready, video record yourself completing your obstacle course in the fastest time possible, or take photographs of the obstacle course itself.

Simply email everything* to youngvetsclub@wvs.org.uk!
