So… you may have seen some of our Nature Play ideas over at Red Ted Art.. I am a great fan of getting the family outdoors and experiencing childhood classic with them. To me “all those little” things, with a couple of big ones thrown in, are what make childhood special.. from playing poo sticks, to catching crabs, to watching butterflies grow, to cooking on a campfire (even if it is just toast or some choc button bananas), these are the things I want my children to EXPERIENCE as they grow up. These are the things I want them to have happy memories of and do time and time again as they grow up and when one day they too have children.
I am pleased to share this FANTASTIC list of childhood classics from the National Trust – 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4 . LOVE IT. I have it as a great list below (with some links to National Trust places), as well as a handy little download for you to download and print, keep and tick off…. go on. I challenge you, can you do ALL 50 before your child is 11 and 3/4?!
