Bike and Trike Wash:  This play date/party is a TON of fun!  I prepared the driveway for the children ahead of time, using cardboard to make signs and some dollar store buckets and sponges.

My husband also made the ever so popular (on Pinterest) Bike Wash for less than $ 7.50.  I can’t tell you how long these children played in the wash.

One of the best things about this party, their bikes were clean and so were they!

 Investment $ 20 at most!  Add in some simple snacks for break time and watch them quickly eat and return to the wash!  Fun for all and really not much to clean up later!  My children ask for this play date all the time!

  1. Oh, I am so very excited about this! My son just turned 7 and still refuses to take off the training wheels. We’re going to go get elbow and knee pads tomorrow! Thank you for such wonderful ideas and tips. I love the concept of learning to fall first and removing that source of fear. That is THE reason he doesn’t want to take them off. Aaaah! So excited!
