There was HUGE excitement in our house this week as we discovered there are 2 new 50 things books – The Extra Messy Adventure and The Night Time Adventure book. So armed with these and a new 50 Things to Do Before You’re 11 3/4 for T we set off for the Lake District.
If you haven’t come across it ’50 things to do before you are 11 3/4′ is the National Trust’s brilliant campaign to encourage children outdoors to explore and discover. E especially is inspired by this project, both by completing the activity and adding them to his book. It is fabulous to look back at his adventure notebook and see all the amazing things he has been up to.
We started T off on her 50 things journey with Pooh sticks, den building and balancing on logs. The boys now have the ‘tricky’ ones to tackle (canoeing – riding a horse etc). But we did manage to do number 46 ‘Try Rock Climbing’. Admittedly it was a small rock! But its kicked off our 2016 campaign.
