WALKING WITH CHILDREN – TOP TIPS TO ENJOY THE HIKE
Walking with children can be hard work, but it doesn’t have to be.
Before we became parents, my husband and I walked all over the UK. We have always loved the great outdoors and walking offered us both great exercise and an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend our free time together.
It doesn’t cost a penny and we have seen some amazing places on foot that we never would have seen. There are some beautiful and interesting places tucked away that you don’t even know exist until you go on a hike and stumble upon them.
When my son was born, it was always our hope that one day he would be able to join us on our adventures, so over the last 18 months we have slowly started to introduce him to the world of walking.
He has enjoyed it from day one. Just like any other child he moans about walking around the shops or walking somewhere if he’s bored but our hikes have never been a problem. I believe that this has been down to the way we introduced him to it and what we do on our walks.
Today I will share with you our secrets in the hope that you can get your children to enjoy walking too!
