Prior to having children my wife and I were keen hill-walkers. We remain keen hill-walkers but have had to adapt our outdoor and hill-walking activities to allow for two small children joining us on these outings. Surprisingly, although we haven’t been up many Munros or Corbetts in recent times we’ve still had a blast on some lower level, less strenuous walks. Hopefully, the children have enjoyed them as well.
Apart from wandering about the countryside we are always on the lookout for other things we can incorporate into our days out. This often includes play-parks, animals, attractions and places to eat.
Depending on the age of our children and the type of activities undertaken, we have used equipment including a Baby Bjorn sling, a baby rucksack, buggy, double buggy, reigns or increasingly no equipment at all. (Giving a three year old a high-shoulder doesn’t count).
