Training your kids to walk

Who has done this? The boys will be 2, 4 and 6 whenever it is we end up going to Disneyland next year so we'll take the Phil and Ted double pram, but we'd like the two older boys to do a lot of walking on their own. I'm thinking that once Daylight Saving starts we might start walking of an evening. We have a park with a 1.7km track right near us, so that would be a perfect place - away from traffic. I don't know how we'll manage to convince them they don't need their bikes though, we're planning on keeping the trip a secret so we can't tell them that that's why we want to get them walking.

Has anybody done this? Was it a success?

If the boys are interested in sports or watching a football game of any sort, tell them that they need to 'train'. When DS was younger, he did ride to the park; but we made him walk/run round the footy oval at least 3 laps and built it up from there.

Sadly, DS lost interest in sport very quickly after that.

We broached the subject last night at dinner and DS1 was horrified about having to WALK to the park rather than ride his bike Time to start negotiations...
