Going for a walk can be great fun, educational and healthy. While adults enjoy walking for its own sake, children need a purpose and to keep their brain and body occupied.
Walking with Kids
This book offers games and activities that can be played either on the move or when having a break, such as Green Man Arise, Mouse and Hobbit. Ways of introducing kids to the environment whilst walking include tracking, looking for signs of changing seasons, mini beast hunting, feather collecting and art and craft activities. It covers woods, forests, open country, rivers, seaside, towns and evening walks.
