How to make hiking fun for kids
As great as it may be to go for a long family walk in the great outdoors, many parents find that before long their little ones start whinging about tired legs, demand to be carried or complain that they're bored.
However, this doesn't mean that you should leave your youngsters at home next time you head out for a hike, as there are a few simple things you can do to ensure that your children enjoy the walk as much as you do.
First of all, make sure you choose a walk that is not too long for the age of the kids you're bringing along. Indeed, while you can reasonably expect a six year old to happily walk for several kilometres, a 15 mile hike might prove to be too tiring for little legs.
