Nov 10, 2014 Ice Skating Class We signed up our son for ice skating classes, and we couldn't believe how quickly he and all the other toddlers picked up the sport. The teachers just put them on the ice, and they all just started skating with confidence. In the beginning they did use the skating bar, but towards the end they were skating by themselves. It was truly amazing to see how easy it is for children to learn new things. I guess they weren't kidding when they say that children are like sponges.
