Mairi MacGregor wrote in with this suggestion...."In the UK, a lot of schools set up a 'walking bus'. This is a way of getting everybody to walk together to make sure everyone arrives safely, everyone in a line of 3-4 abreast, with adults at the front, middle and rear and passing designated points at certain times. Often parents volunteer, but with children in a home it could be helpers at the home, or if you have kids up to 18 they could supervise the younger ones. Some schools will issue fluorescent bibs so that children are easily seen and identified as part of the walking bus."
What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this with us, Mairi!
