Walking with Children... (or getting them away from screens...)
Walking in parks and the countryside is such a cheap and easy way to get out and enjoy nature whilst getting in some quality family time and exercise for parents and children.
So how can you get your young ones interesting in walking? Here are some useful tips...
1. Make the Idea Sound like Fun
2. Choose an Interesting Spot
3. Dress Them Properly
4. Don't be afraid of the weather
5. Keep the pace slow
6. Make up games as you go
7. Keep safe at all times
Walking with very young children may require a pram or buggy. To ensure an enjoyable walk, it's helpful to find out in advance whether the route you are taking will be accessible.
On the Walks Around Britain website, the number of stiles and the grading of the route will help you decide whether the walk is suitable for buggies.
Alternatively, use a baby carrier, such as the ones from Deuter. These baby carriers are great and comfortable for both the child and the adult, and have an amazing amount of storage too for all those baby-related essentials.
