In “Hiking with Kids of Any Age,” REI Co-op suggests, “Rediscover your inner child: For kids, it truly is the journey, not the destination. Remind yourself of that, then explore with them, one mini marvel at a time.”


Walkabouts has created a Scavenger Hunt to use for curious children. Print it out and start a hiking adventure!

Walkabouts are online adventures that transform math, language arts, and reading fundamentals into standards-based, movement-rich lessons for Pre-K through second grade students. At ActivEd, we know that kids learn more, are more engaged, and are healthier when they are active both in and out of the classroom.
