For parents: Encourage your child to scoot today! Scooting is a great way to exercise, build your child’s self-confidence, gross motor skills, and sense of balance. Plus, it’s a great way for them to keep up on short commutes. Scooting to school is a great way for your child to celebrate this day! Always scoot with or walk alongside your child.
