Use the information in the ICBC Road Safety Learning Resources to extend this activity:

To make the game more challenging, have an adult in the centre of the space be a traffic light, and flash red, yellow and green objects to show when the children can move. 
If you have a child who uses a wheelchair or has a gross motor limitation, place cards where they are able to reach them.
