I taped some fun lines on the floor in three different colors.
A blue zig zag line. A red curvy line. And one straight line in green.
We ended up with two tape activities with this one setup of colored tape.
- Walk the line of colored tape.
- Blow pom poms along the coordinating color line.
We recently redid this activity again with my preschooler, George. Below are the latest images of George doing the tape activities mixed in with Henry doing the activities a couple of years ago. Henry was 3 at the time when we first did this. George is 4 when we did it again with the new photos below.

Fun Tape Activity: Walk the Line
Simple just walk along the lines of tape.
One foot in front of each other.
Following one of the colored lines.
Balancing to stay on your color.
Make it harder by doing it backwards, or even sideways!
(Blue Dog even got a turn ‘walking the line’!)
Fun Tape Activity: Blow Pom Poms along the Line
Use pom poms in corresponding colors to the tape.
Blow the pom poms down the line with a straw.
(Or you could forgo the straw, but they make it really fun!)
Try your best keeping the pom pom on the line all the way to the end.
Its really harder than you think! Join them!
Have pom pom races! I shared a pom pom racing activity over on PBS Parents using this same technique.
Ultimately. Laugh. Joining in the fun will definitely make you laugh. Enjoy!
