12 Animal Walks for Kids Who Crave Sensory Input

Last week we received our first official dump of snow and the cold arctic air came with it. Just like that, we're shoveling snow and bundling up to brave the -30 C wind chills.

Wind chills like that though mean that we can't always spend a lot of time playing outdoors. So it doesn't take long for the kids to get a bit squirrely with our long cold winters.

Thankfully, we can burn off excess energy indoors with these 12 fun animal walks for kids. They're also a great way to provide proprioceptive and vestibular sensory input to my sensory seeking kids.

Animal Walks for Kids That Will Get the Kids Moving!

There are many reasons to love these animal walks, but there are two main reasons I love them. 

One, they require zero prep and zero additional materials. You just need kids and some open space. 

Second, they're a great way to burn off excess energy, making them perfect for rainy or cold winter days. And we are definitely into winter already here! So we need these animal walks to prevent the kids from going crazy when it's simply too cold to play outside.
