It’s great for your health.
It’s great for the environment.
It’s great for your family.
Going for a family walk on a Saturday afternoon or on a weeknight after dinner is a great way to secure focused family time. It’s a space to unplug from technology, focus on each other and explore your neighbourhood or even other parts of the city.
6 Ways to Make a Walk Fun
1 – Races! Who can get to that mailbox first?
2 – Make up stories about what you see.
3 – Talk about your day, ask and answer questions about what you see around you.
4 – How many different ways can you walk?
5 – Take a picnic with you and search for the perfect picnic spot.
6 – Pass a Frisbee or ball back and forth as you walk (just not near the street, to be safe)
