Tricycle/Bicycle Course

Create a fun obstacle course for your children to make their way through. You can create a series of activities such as a pretend gas station, mailbox to mail letters, stopping at the grocery store for groceries. You can create obstacles with cones, the laundry basket, tires, etc. You can also create a pathway and direction for them to go through using tape to outline the pathway. Make sure that you make it clear that there is one particular area that the children get on and off the tricycles.  You can vary this activity by creating the mail to put in the mailbox before starting tricycle obstacle course (mail paper snowflakes, mail envelopes with numbers and letters, mail index cards with stickers on them). This activity helps work on your child’s sense of direction, following multi-step directions, leg strength pedaling and visual motor skills following the pathway.
