Walking seems to have become a regular part of our routine, especially when the weather is nice and we want (need!) to get out of the house.
Have you always wondered how you can make walks more exciting for you and the kids?
Havebury’s Top 5 walking ideas
- A treasure hunt – make a list of things you want to find out your walk. You can write down a list or get the children to draw pictures. These become the items you must find whilst on your walk. Why not bring an item you see back home with you so your children will have a special memory.
- Picture perfect – grab a disposable camera and let your kids snap away whilst you are walking. Ask them to find things to take pictures of or let their imaginations run wild. You can then use these photos to make a scrap book of the Summer Holidays 2020 (when the world was a bit strange)
- Collect and dissect – Go out and collect acorns, flowers, and leaves, then bring the home and look inside them. It is a way to work on comparing objects and to see how things look on the inside.
- Total Wipeout – Jump over those cracks in the pavement. Run a circle around the bench. Touch that tree. Run fast, STOP! These are all ways to turn a simple walk into a listening and tiring activity.
- Road signs – what does the sign mean? Kids are never to young learn about the importance of being safe whilst around or on the road.
