Physical Literacy | Toddler Biking

TIME: 30 Minutes

AGES: 1 – 4

SKILL: Balance, Kick


  • Small tricycle or riding toy with 3-4 wheels


  1. Go for a walk with your toddler riding alongside
  2. Stay on sidewalks of quiet streets and park pathways
    TIP: Make sure your child always wears a helmet
    TIP: This basic “wheeling” helps develop balance and leg strength


  • With toddlers ages 3-4, consider introducing them to a balance bike (two wheels but no pedals)


This activity develops balance, coordination, and strength in the legs in preparation for more advanced cycling activities at older ages
