Summertime is finally here and it’s time to dig that bike out of the garage or basement! Riding a bike is a fun activity for both children and adults. It keeps us active, is a great form of exercise and gives us a chance to enjoy the sunshine. But an important thing about bike safety, is to always wear a helmet. Head Start children were able to learn about the importance of wearing a helmet with “Sassy” who visited their classroom and taught them how to properly fit and adjust a bike helmet. Sassy read a story about what can happen if you don’t wear a helmet while riding a bike and how helmets can keep us safe. Children made a pledge to “always always always wear a helmet!” Children were also able to try on a helmet and take a quick spin around the classroom on a bike. Thank you to Sassy for the valuable lesson!
