I love, love, LOVE these ideas! Sadly, my 3 year old isn't quite there yet, but I like the idea of using the pedometers to work out how many steps it would take me to walk to a city and back, and rewarding myself with the trip once I've hit it! For instance, it's 349 miles to Paris, which is where I'd LOVE to go with my partner for his 55th birthday. That means I have to walk 2,000 steps per mile = 698,000 steps to get there, 1,396,000,000 to get there and back.
So, if I say the holiday will cost me £1,000 (I seriously doubt it, as his Bday is a pretty quiet time of year, but it's nice to give ourselves some money to play with) and I save just 1p per 14,000 steps, I'll have enough by the time I hit the target distance. I just need to hit it by the end of 2012, lol!
Just because you have been through the rain of life doesn't mean I have to walk around in wet clothes forever; there is a warm towel, a big hug, and a mug of low fat cocoa waiting for you somewhere!
