This month we welcome the return of annual International Walk to School Month (IWALK). Created by the Active & Safe Routes to School program, it is a mass celebration of ‘active transportation’, with over 40 countries encouraging primary school kids and parents to ditch the car and instead walk or wheel to school.
How do your kids get to school? For many families the car has become the main mode of transport for getting children to school, resulting in a decline in the numbers of kids walking and wheeling on a regular basis. Although it may seem more convenient to just jump in the car, IWALK raises some important themes that should be taken into consideration when choosing how to travel.
Convinced? Good! Well we wanted to make your walk to school even more fun and so we’ve created the Tootsa Printable Walk To School activity sheet for you to download.
This collection we have the very popular ESK 3-Way Reversible Jacket available in Ivy Green (below), and Loch Blue. This is a great option for school walks with the bright rainbow colour blocking on the back, and reflective piping and panel ensuring children stay warm, dry, and easily visible on those dark winter’s evenings.
Keep toasty with our beautiful hand knitted Fox Hats, Scarves and Mittens. Hand knitted in the UK from the softest blend of organically dyed, British farmed Corriedale, Merino and Alpaca, choose from Marmalade or Grey.
Stay safe + warm, and enjoy the walking!
