Make it into a Game
Kids may find the idea of an hour or two of walking a little daunting – and kids tend to have shorter attention spans that us adults. Still, the gorgeous Norfolk countryside is worth the trip, so why not make the walk into a game? You could play the classic I Spy, and try and see what Norfolk wildlife you could spot, or perhaps make it into a scavenger hunt and bring along a list of insects, birds, and animals you’d like to catch a glimpse of, and tick them off as you go.
