Bike Challenge


  • 20 to 30 minutes


  • Scooters, bikes, and other vehicles
  • Chalk


Draw an obstacle course to ride through and around.


  • With more than one child, have participants begin together at one line and finish together at another, emphasizing control of speed and cooperation.
  • Use cones or other objects instead of chalk lines.
  • Start in small groups at opposite ends of the course and ride past each other slowly without touching or bumping.
  • Assign a safe stopping place and have each child take a turn riding around the area and return to a spot to get off for the next person's turn.
  • Be a traffic director and have them follow your arm movements.
