Recording 50 Things To Do Before You're 11 ¾ adventures.

As I mentioned in my post Natural Childhood – playing in the great outdoors, I am excited about recording Bug’s accomplishments off the challenges from the 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 ¾ list. 

I will be recording and capturing his achievements with photographs and video as well as writing about them on here, sharing some of my favourite photographs of his accomplishments.

As well as recording his adventures on here and with photographs we are also using the brilliant, colourful 50 Things website to record his achievements.  You can create an account for your child/children on the website where they can keep a virtual record of their accomplishments, with challenges that completed being ticked off from the list.  On the website children have their own little Outdoors Explorer to help them complete the challenges with rewards available to personalise their Outdoors Explorer for completing each of the 50 adventures.  There are also hidden secret challenges for children to find on the website.
Also on the 50 Things website is a Parent’s area where there is a wealth of activity information and safety advice so that you can help your little one’s completed their adventures in a safe and fun way.

Via the National Trust Wales facebook page I have also downloaded a bilingual 50 Things Wales planner which is filled with a host of National Trust properties in our area with details of what 50 Things adventures can be completed at the various properties.

I have also picked up a free 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 ¾ scrapbook from a participating National Trust property for Bug to record his achievements.

Bug is at the start of his 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 ¾ challenge and his adventure of exploring what Mother Nature has on offer whilst playing outdoors, learning new skills and having lots of new experiences.

To get started on the challenge with your child/children why not get outside and have lots of fun adventures together.  For added assistance 350 National Trust places are offering over 7,000 activities and events throughout the year to help children complete their 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 ¾ list.
