Toddler obstacle courses

Inquiring minds


Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here is one of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately.


Q. Are you still holding toddler obstacle courses at the library?


A. Yes! Do you know someone between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old who is looking for a personal challenge involving nylon tunnels, Styrofoam bricks, parachute flaps, foam hoops, plastic stepping stones and much, much more? The Ramsey County Libraries hold regular toddler obstacle courses for active preschoolers (and what toddler isn’t active?) and their caregivers at all our major locations. In winter we hold the courses in our large meeting rooms; in summer, when possible, we move outside. Roseville children’s librarian Jennifer Dietrich describes the events as “important for developing fine and gross motor skills.” Judging from the enthusiastic response from the under-5 set at a recent toddler obstacle course event, the kids just think they’re major fun.
