Step by step
Choose a 5 kilometre (3 miles) route using a map or a route planner. Ideally start from home so you don't have to drive.
Get out in the fresh air as a family and enjoy! Remember to pack water and some fruit for an energy boost.
Don't forget to take a picture while you're on your adventure! You'll need it to score your goals.
If walking gets boring for your team, take a ball with you and practise keepy-uppies or catch (when you are NOT near a road!).
Take a tree book or tree spotting app with you and see what trees you can identify on the way.
Yes, definitely. Try Snap a Bug, for example. Or collecting things for The Beautiful Game.
