Family Flashlight Walks

If your slightly moody older kids refuse to go on brisk and invigorating early morning autumn walks with you because such walks are: a) brisk and invigorating, b) early, and c) with you, change your plans.

Get everyone to go right after dinner instead, and make sure everyone has a flashlight.

Don’t sprint energetically around your neighborhood, just aim for a casual 15-minute stroll.

Focus those flashlights on the neighborhood around you, and the kids won’t really be seen with you.

And as long as no one thinks you’re hyperventilating, take lots of deep breaths and start to relax.


Idea inspired by Go Outside by Nancy Blakey. Have you bought all of her books yet?
