Turn off the TV (computer, tablet, cell, whatever) and go for a walk with the little ones. School vacations are coming and we don’t know what to do with all the energy the kids have. Take them for a walk, go for a hike in the forest, explore nature, ride a horse, paddle in a pond, get lost in a labyrinth, splash in a river and have experiences that you will never forget.
