I’ve read lots of articles over the last couple of months about the facts that kids used to spend a lot more time outside than they do now. Although you have to adapt to this new world of computers and playstation, I do agree that children should spend as much time running outside as possible rather than sit in front of a screen.
Outdoor is also about letting your children get dirty and muddy, and experience, discover, and maybe get over a little scare.
The National Trust came up with a list of 50 outdoor challenges that children should experience. I have just signed up to their 50things newsletter to get ideas of places to go and things to do.
Give it a go and let us how you are doing. Any ideas of places to go to are always welcome, or other challenges.
Keep in touch with us and we’ll give some ideas every week on how to complete the National Trust challenge and more.
