1 Invite a friend
Walking is a simple, cheap and popular form of exercise, and it will be much easier to get your child on board if one of his friends comes, too.

2 Watch wildlife
Research by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds shows that spending time in natural environments promotes a positive outlook.

3 Be prepared
At the start of the walk, hand out small paper bags for collecting twigs, seed heads and pebbles. You can make a visual map of the walk when you get home. Also take a picnic and lots of snacks,

4 Stop regularly
Take your time and pause to play a game of pooh sticks, climb trees, scramble over stiles and play hide-and-seek in the bushes.

5 Choose your route
Keep your children interested by picking routes with winding paths, hills, water, wildlife and dramatic scenery.
