"Wind Shadow"

My 6 year old rides to a park about 1-1/2 miles away on her 2 wheeler. I take the other 2 kids in a trailer.

Coming back today there was a strong wind. Her legs were getting quite tired. I was trying to explain to her that she should ride behind the trailer and draft.

The best explanation was to tell her to get behind me in my "wind shadow"

Any other interesting stories about trying to teach kids some of the finer points of cycling?
