Stars n stripes believe that children learn better whilst having fun, they also love to dress up and role play – that’s why we created our simulated road.
We aim to link the two elements: they will not only learn to ride a bike without ever needing stabilisers, they learn to balance, break and stop whilst learning to ride safely from the very start.
The twist in our project is that we promote basic road safety awareness on our simulated play-road where we encourage roleplay and dress up as lollipop ladies/men, police officers & workmen with real road signs, traffic lights, zebra crossing, bumps and much more.
We also open our play road to any wheels encouraging younger children to bring their trike, scooter, scuttle bug, wheelie, skates or walker at specific sessions.
We are seeking funding for larger bikes as older children and parents love the Play-Road too! If you would like to sponsor the Play-Road or donate equipment, wheels, signs or bunting please get in touch.
