The Potty Training Race game is a fun and easy way to teach your child how to use the potty, as well as give them a cue for when they really need to go!
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!
- 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.
