So much to see, hear and play on your next walk to school
We know that your kids may already have their eyes peeled for a swooping magpie, but what else can they see on their walk to school? Colourful fences, native trees, animals, bikes or a new building are all great things to check out.
Walking, riding, skating or scooting to and from school is a great way for kids to get their bodies moving and feel great. There are heaps of easy ways to help kids have even more fun to really take your trips to the next level.
