When I first saw the list I was a little shocked that some very simple activities are on it, but then I remember some of the kids I teach have never left Cornwall and so there must be children out there who do not get to experience what I would consider basic childhood activities.
I have looked at the list many times now and I know that there are some on there that I can already tick off for Beanie but also a lot that he hasn't done.
I have registered him onto the website, where he can tick off the activities that he has done and we can see what is on in the local National Trust properties over the summer. Some have specific '50 things to do' activities put on for the children, other just list what activities can be done at which property. He can apparently earn badges....but I will need to look into that a bit more.
So my plan....
Now that I know I can take all three out for the day on my own I am planning to tick off the majority of those '50 things' over the summer holiday. I will blog about them/ photograph them and at the end of the summer will add a link so you can join in. Let's see how many of them we can accomplish. Some we will not be able to do, i.e. throwing some snow, though with this weather who knows what will happen!
So keep your eyes open and watch out for our first accomplishment!
