If you are anything like me, sometimes you need a few tricks to get your kiddos excited about heading out and taking a walk.

I find that a super simple scavenger hunt usually does the trick. It gets the kids focused on looking for the items on the list and often we end up finding really fun things that are not even on our list.
This is a great way to observe and think about our surroundings differently. It’s fun to see what they notice and, sometimes I take the opportunity to ask some follow-up questions to help them think a little deeper. Other times, I just let them enjoy and explore!
I don’t know about you but the mental load of trying to remember everything you need to bring can make this task harder than it really is. I tend to forget the obvious things (like my own jacket!), so if I have a list that I can cross off and look at as we are packing that it saves me time and energy. My husband and I usually pack different items (he does skis, boots etc. and I do more of the clothing items) so this ensures that we don’t forget something obvious by thinking the other one packed it (did I mention we forgot my jacket earlier this year?).
