After 6 Days In Isolation, Siblings Come Up With Hilarious Indoor Obstacle Course.

Kids and teenagers all over the world are stuck at home as we try to slow the spread of COVID-19.

While this means they have to adapt to remote learning to finish the school year, they also have to find productive ways to amuse themselves with all their extra downtime. One group of siblings in Virginia put together a creative project that made our jaws drop, and now their video is going viral!

With most sporting events canceled, these basketball enthusiasts created an indoor game to play with their younger sister.

They put together an elaborate obstacle course using a ping-pong ball, a leaf blower, books, and other common household items. When they achieved perfection, they turned on the camera — but a last minute appearance from another family member came so close to ruining everything!

In a video, we see their sister drop the ball onto a Hot Wheels ramp from the second floor landing. The ball rolls down, sets off a row of dominoes, and then careens around a hallway corner with help from some books. A leaf blower gives it another boost before it heads into the final leg of the course.

The kids cheer the entire time, urging the ball to do its thing. Everything goes perfectly… until their cat gets involved. As the kitty grabs at the ping-pong ball, it veers off course and the kids groan. That’s when the impossible happens!

We won’t spoil it for you. You have to see it to believe it!
