Walking with cane or guide dog having two small children

What can I use to walk places where it is like taking a hike anywhere with 2 children 2 and 5 when I have to use my cane or guide dog in one hand so only one had free for stroller or something else. Any suggestions ?

I cant use a stroller and a cane at the same time. I use a wagon to pull my 4yo and 1yo. This way I have a free hand. Get one with larger wheels to pull over rough ground.
The kids love it. I can buckle the smaller one in to prevent wagon surfing. I can even carry toys and other childhood accessories in it and keep a free hand.

Hi
I don't have kids so these are just some ideas that I have seen used with parents who are blind. For your two year old, how about a sling or child backpack? They are supposed to work really well and help you to keep your hands free. For your five-year-old, what about a child strap? They are just straps sometimes connected to your wrist or something else and they let you keep track of your child without having to constantly hold their hand. I hope this helped!
