DS2 is 3.5, and we will often do a 3km walk. We also do a 6km bike ride, but we break in the middle of that one for an icy pole

I read not long ago that they say a child can walk one km in distance for each birthday. That being said, they may require small breaks and it is a total for the day (I think).

My 3 year old (nearly 4, but has been doing it since 3) scoots uphill to kinder and often much much further. Kinder is a little under a kilometer away, but often on the way home we will go a long route so he can scoot around a bit longer. then around once a week he scoots up a huge hill, around a big park and to a playground where he runs around for 30 minutes, then home again which is around a 4-5k round trip depending on how we travel home. Honestly, kids are fine to walk or scoot. 1.5k is diddly squat.

I guess you could always just try the walk or ride? My eldest 3 daughters aged 3,4&6 ride whilst I walk at least 3 times a week and that's anywhere from 4-8km. They will walk 2-4km easily as well. The first few times were a struggle so we had plenty of stops but now they love it

Thank you for all the replies - it gives me a good idea of what other kids her age are doing, and makes me realise we have been a little slack!
I think we just need to start giving some longer distances a go over summer, and I can judge from there how she might go scooting/riding to kinder. I have contributed to the issue because I get sick of all the whinging when we walk so give in and bring the pram! She used to hate sitting in the pram when she was younger, but the last 6 months or so wants to use it more and more - possibly coinciding with her younger brother using it all the time.

How far does your 3 year old walk/scoot/ride?
I had to test DS1 today because I kept thinking about this thread. He walked 2.5km in about 40 mins before he started to complain of sore feet. I think he was more bored than anything TBH.

I have a 4 year old who can walk about 2.5kms. He can walk further than he can ride his bike or scooter. I don't have a double pram (he hasn't sat in a pram since he was 2.5). We love to walk to the playground with him while his baby sister is in the pram sleeping, but some days he gets so tired from the walk + playing that it's really hard to get him to walk back home.

Really depends on the child..
Ds would walk, ride or scooter for miles when he was 3 and it was never an issue. Dd on the other hand has only a limited interest and stamina for walking/riding/scootering before she starts whinging to be carried or that she is too tired.
