Get your child excited about riding by planning a special bike trip at a local park or on a scenic bike path. Pack a picnic and your bicycle helmets and you're ready to go!
Make pedal practice fun by setting up a simple obstacle course for your child to drive around. Use small trash cans, lawn chairs and other items found at your house as the obstacles to drive around. Count the number of "pedals" it takes to get somewhere. Count every time one foot goes down and see how many pedals it takes to get to the mailbox or the end of the driveway.
