The 20th May kicks off National Walk to School Week, and there’s no better reason to hop off the bus and pound the pavements to school. It’s not only a great opportunity to get your kids to spend more time outdoors but to spend some quality time together too.
An important part of walking to school is learning about road safety and the green cross code – you can even make this a fun part of the journey. Do you know the difference between zebra, pelican and puffin crossings? Put your knowledge to the test and see how many you can spot on your walk.
You could even learn about the different seasons by collecting leaves, helicopter seeds, conkers and flowers on your walk – and this’ll help to keep the kids busy after school too. They could make crayon rubbings, press flowers or make a nature scrapbook to learn about different trees and their leaves.
