50 things to do before you are 11¾ is a challenge that has been set by the National Trust and is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your kids. Mind you it’s also a great list to have a wander down memory lane and figure out how many of those activities you did as a child too!
We started our 50 things list about 18 months ago and as and when I have remembered, I have updated it.
It looks like we’re half way and only have another 3 years or so to tick the other 22 or so things off our list before our eldest son reaches the 11¾ bit!
Now, to be honest, I myself, have never played a grass trumpet and so I really should get a move on learning how to do that. Or perhaps I should get the boys to figure it out and they can teach me. I also need to figure out what bouldering is – if anyone knows and can let me know the answer…that would be helpful!
Some things which aren’t on the list but possibly should be considered for inclusion :
- Ride a bike
- Whistle with your mouth (or fingers..I can’t do the fingers one myself!)
- Playing Pooh sticks
Those are just a few that come to mind… how about you? Any others you think should be added to the list?
