International Walk or Bike To School Day is Oct 6, 2021. International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. You can learn more here.
Walking to school helps kids concentrate during the day, it reduces traffic, it’s great exercise, and it helps the environment!
This year is a great year to give this a try at your house, especially as many families are trying to avoid crowded school buses while Covid is still circulating. If you’re worried about the bus, or you’re finding the school car drop-off is crowded and slow, try walking instead! Your kids may find they really like the walk to school once they’ve tried it.
To encourage them, try this Walk To School Bingo Board and see how many items they can check off on their way to school. This year for the first time, the bingo game is mobile! If you’re on a mobile device right now, you can try it here.
If you prefer the pen and paper route, you can also print the Walk To School Bingo board for free. It works great with a small, memo-sized clipboard.
