5 Minute Spy Laser Obstacle Course for Kids

Phoenyx has been a cranky pants all week. Daddy comes home today from being out of town all week (YAY!) and he is on his wits end with me I think. So today I decided to use all this crepe paper for something fun. Its been on my mind for awhile that I wanted to make a sorta “Spy” obstacleย course that the kids could go under and over as if the paper was lasers. Obviously my 2 year old is more likely to tear through it, but I think he did a pretty good job once I showed him how its done!

Create Spy Obstacle (Fake) Laser Course

Charlotte is not home yet to test it out, but here is what we did. For less than $3, we had a good time (and plenty available for new courses later!)

Tape your Crepe paper to the walls from one end to the other, taking care to create a lot of high and lows.

  1. How fun! My son just went NUTS over our extra crepe paper from my hubby’s birthday a few weeks ago, so this is right up his alley. Maybe this way he can play with it WITHOUT wrapping it around the dog or his baby brother.

  2. He did good! I’m not sure that my 4-year-old would be so attentive in navigating the ‘lasers’ – I think she’d tear right through. Ha, we call her Cranky Pants too. It’s good to know I’m not alone ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. OH This would be great in our basement. A laser obstacle course that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg and one that I can watch while they use their big motor skills!

  4. I love this idea! I never though of it when my son was younger. ๐Ÿ™ We did take several appliance boxes once and taped them together with duct tape to make this huge tunnel “playhouse” for our son that filled up our downstairs family room (it’s almost 1,000 square ft). It stayed up for over a month. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • We used a box cutter. We also made 3 cuts/slices and left the top intact, so it was like a flap for windows. We let him decorate the outside and he even made a mail box. I know I didn’t take pictures, but my husband may have. I’ll check with him this evening and see if he has any.
