Did you know that only one in ten children regularly play in wild spaces?

With a list of 50 outdoor family adventures, such as, skim a stone or climb a tree, the National Trust is getting kids excited about the outdoors whatever the weather and giving them the confidence to explore before they reach their 12th birthday.


50 things to do before you’re 11¾ was developed by the National Trust in response to their Natural Childhood Report. The report highlighted research that only 1 in 10 children regularly play in wild places (compared to almost half a generation ago), a third have never climbed a tree and 1 in 10 can’t ride a bike.


To make sure we’ve got the next generation of Ben Moons, Ellen MacArthurs and Ranulph Fiennes we’re proud to support the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ campaign.
