What age is too young to go roller-skating? Unless your kids are super coordinated – I think they need to be at least seven before they can really stay on their feet. Even then, they will probably need some assistance.
Having a roller-skating party for little kids? Here’s what you need to know:
1. A little kid on roller skates is like Bambi on the ice. You have to be able to hold up the child on the roller skates (and your arm muscles will probably hurt the next day from it). Having a roller-skating party for little kids? You are going to need some additional grown-ups to help out on the rink.
2. The only thing harder than holding up a kid in roller skates is doing so while YOU are wearing skates yourself. Don’t waste money on a skate rental , you are better off to wear sneakers, so you can help your child. (Be aware a child will run over your sneakered foot with skates – ouch!).
3. They may not suggest them, you have to ask, but they DO have kid skates. If you are there with really little ones (5 or under), I HIGHLY recommend the kid skates. You can always ask if you can start with the beginner skates and swap them out if the child is advanced enough to handle the real deal.
There is no sound like the sound of a kid (or adult) hitting the rink wall or falling down wearing roller skates. We went skating as a family and things have changed a lot, People. Here’s what happened.
Have fun, and I hope they play some awesome music!
