In the meantime, and by meantime we mean the foreseeable future, our list of things to do with kids while stuck at home is still fun and we hope it’s something you’ll circle back to when you’re short on ideas.

 

11 Things to do With Your Kids While Stuck at Home

  1. Use a paper map (!) to plot a bike ride through a forest trail network or neighborhood and then have your kid be the navigator/map reader. It’s ok to get lost and we highly recommend channeling your inner Planet Earth narrative voice-over.
  1. Bike picnic. Pack a special lunch and get out. Turn your adventure into a documentary.
  1. Rockets made from a plastic bottle, baking soda & vinegar. It’s a blast! Who doesn’t love to blow things up? Huge opportunity for special effects here!
  1. Slackline. Shoot this in slow-mo, sped-up, or lots of clips edited together. The magic here happens post production.
  1. Try to make a fire without matches. Supervision is key here, but it’s totally doable.  EurekaCamping has some great ideas.
  1. Frisbee golf. Schools make excellent courses. Think of this as filming a sporting event. Conduct some interviews with athletes, show highlights etc. 
  1. Build a kid friendly bike ramp or teeter-totter. RedBull Rampage, here we come! *please make sure this is well within your rider’s ability.
  1. Treasure hunt. Depending on how much set-up area and time you have, kids can search on bikes or by foot. 
  1. Carwash. It’s not just a 1970’s cinematic treasure. Your ride will end up sparkling clean. 
  1. Yoga for Kids – Next level adorable. Get in the groove, then create your own variation of a sun salutation to share!
  1. You show us! Come up with your own idea that’s more brilliant than the ones we’ve listed.

Originally started as Junior Crested Butte Bike Week in 2016, the event is held in conjunction with the oldest and one of the wildest bike shindigs in America, Crested Butte Bike Week.

PSI: Why It’s Especially Important for Kids Bikes

Air filled tires are simple and amazing invention, so much so that today we take them for granted. But before Scottish inventor John Boyd Dunlop invented the pneumatic tire we were all suffering through cobblestones and rough roads on solid rubber, wooden or metal tires. Think of a horse drawn cart, with its rigid wooden and steel wheel. That’s how uncomfortable early bicycles were.

Riding with Pre K kids. A letter from Jeff.

The kids are going back to school! If you’re like me, the parent of a Hedgehog rider, you likely woke up this morning to find that your four-year-old crawled into bed with you last night and is softly snoring into your face. Pre-K is a sweet age. My little son wants to be a big, independent kid – and he’s not quite there yet. My son goes to sleep on his own, for instance, but he still ends up crawling into our bed before morning.
