Sing a Song

Riding Bikes Needs Special Gear (Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Wear your helmet every ride,
With a grown-up by your side!
A shirt that's light or bright is fine
Maybe yellow just like mine!

You may want a nice, bright vest
One that's red or orange is best!
To guard your tootsies you should use

Heavy socks and sturdy shoes!

These safety clothes are good to wear,
So drivers see that you are there!
Wear your helmet every ride,

With a grown-up by your side!

Bicycle Safer Journey

Try This

Have your child earn a “driver’s license” for their bicycle. Make them take a test (include parking, locking up, putting on helmet) and go for a ride with them. After they pass their test, take their picture and create a license. You can laminate it to make it more authentic.

Read a Book

Here are some book recommendations for today. Check out the picture book collection at your local library, where there are lots of books to choose from! Find nearby libraries
