Potty Training Race
Start introducing your child to the potty with the “Potty Training Race.” This bathroom game is designed to teach your child how to use the potty and give your little trainee a cue word for when they really need to go. Along with being a great way to make potty training fun for you and your child, this game gives your child the opportunity to feel in control.

How to Play

  • Place a potty chair in the bathroom and show it to your toddler.
  • Explain to your child that to play this bathroom game, you have to listen closely for the code word. The code word can be something like “Time to Potty,” or something more fun and creative that your toddler gets to choose.
  • After hearing the code word, you and your child both have to race to the potty and whoever sits on the potty first wins!
To increase the challenge as your child gets the hang of it, try extending the life of the game with these tips:

  • Play the game in every room of your house. Move the potty chair to more difficult spots.
  • Time them to see how fast they can find the potty chair and encourage them to keep beating their last time.
  • Add one more step to the race, where your child has to pull their pants down before sitting on the potty.
  • Add another step to the race, where the winning action is peeing or pooping into the potty.

Extra Potty Race Tips

Always remember, if you’re potty training a very active personality, keep things highly interactive and engaging. Especially for those children who love to play, this game is a great option to motivate your child and get them potty  trained that allows them to keep moving and put all that energy to use.
