Going for walks is an ideal way to spend time with the family - it's free, it's healthy, it's outdoors, it's fun and educational and it's something you can all share together no matter your age or ability. You can do it with other families, on your own or with other family members. It can be a long, all day affair or just an hour trek. It can be in all sorts of different terrain: woodland, seashore, farm land or country paths. Most of all, it's something to enjoy!
Growing up involves experiencing so many new things. As an adult, you can immediatly recognise the outdoor landscape, being able to identify lorries, tractors, pylons, streetlights, churches, factories, and so on. To your babies, these are all new, and they only begin to make sense of the landscape over time. Spend time outside with your children, go for walks and point out interesting features and objects; talk to them, and in time they will begin to learn about their environment. The great outdoors must be pretty baffling to a baby, but in no time at all, they will come to understand it and foster an appreciation for the finer things in life!
