What to Do During a Walk?
It’s obvious that the fresh air that kids get walking outside benefits every child.
Besides, the child develops and discovers the world more. There are a lot of things happening on the streets that the child doesn’t see at home that he can see during walks with kids. Of course, everything depends on the child’s age and the activity itself.
For example, little babies sit in the baby carriage and observe what’s going on. You should show your baby as much as you can. If a dog passes by, the point at it. If you see a cat, a bird, grass, a leaf, a bug, show it to the baby.
When the child is older, you’d better plan your walk beforehand. For example, you can tell your kid what you are going to do during the walk. You can feed birds, play with a dog, walk in the park, ride a carousel, cycle, fly a kite, kid-friendly hike, and so on. Your child will receive plenty of information about doing any of these activities.
You can develop a child’s coordination of movements by playing with balls, riding a scooter or a bike. Also, the kid learns how to jump when they are outside. You can take a rope or a ball for this activity. Go to the sports field with chin-up bars, crossbars, and wheels where the child can run, jump, and hang.
One more interesting game while having a walk is creating stories. For example, when you see a stranger, create a story of his life, where he lives, what his hobby is, where he works, where he is going. Such a game develops the child’s imagination, logic, and teaches them to formulate their thoughts.
Dad can teach his son some brands of cars on a walk with the kid. When the child knows car brands more or less, change the game to a more complicated one. Tell the car brand and ask your son to find it.
If it’s raining outside, you can put on rubber boots and let the child walk through the puddles. Children are always excited about such walks.
You can launch a boat along a stream or in puddles.
During a walk, you can feed birds, observe the world around you, look at insects, and collect an herbarium.
In warm seasons, take colored chalk and soap bubbles. They won’t let you get bored.
You can fly kites, launch gliders, go on adventure child-friendly walks and all kinds of pinwheels.
Also, if it’s warm outside, organize a hike, take “breakfast for a tourist,” go to the nearest park, and have a real picnic there.
In winter, you can make a snowman or build a castle. Then, have fun together and destroy what you’ve made!
Don’t care about the weather. Take a good mood, fantasize together with your child, and create different interesting activities. Then, the kid will have a desire to discover the world and learn more from their parents.
