It started with train bridges. Our son noticed them in books and on the train table. Our daughter pointed them out on walks and drives. Soon they were obsessed.
We got in the stroller and headed down to our nearby running path which happens to be bridge heavy. Hopefully you have a bridge or two in your area. We experienced going under and over bridges - repeating these words over and over again. I picked one bridge that is particularly cool and let them out of the stroller to explore more up close. Our toddlers enjoyed running across the bridge and watching the water go under the bridge.
Check back later this week for some bridge activities we did when we got home.
*Things to bring - weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, notebook, pens/markers/crayons, camera, book about bridges.
*Always dress yourself and your child(ren) in weather appropriate clothing for a walk.
*Pay attention to how far you are going and turn around long before anyone gets tired. Every child is different, but for a guideline our two year olds can easily walk a half mile - so about a quarter of a mile in I typically turn us around. A mile is possible, but they are quite tired by the end.
