Synopsis

50 Things to Do Before You're 11 3/4 by Jane Eastoe

It's about time the UK's children got away from their computers and games consoles and embraced the great outdoors. This fun-filled, inspirational book, published in conjunction with the National Trust's phenomenally successful media and internet campaign, is packed with ideas to encourage your sofa-bound offspring to get outside and learn all those time-honoured skills every child should know. 50 Things to Do Before You're 11 3/4 will take your children into the woods, up hills, along riverbanks and down to the beach. They'll learn to light a fire without matches, catch a fish with a net, dam a stream, climb a tree, hunt for bugs and experience the fascinating 21st-century craze of geocaching. With the activities in this book they'll discover a whole new world of outdoor adventure, and get happier and healthier along the way! Exclusively for this book, we've expanded the main 50 Things to Do list with 50 extra things to do - at the seaside, in the rain, in the winter and in the spring - and we've provided some great suggestions for easy things to plant in your garden or window box. Full of fun and excitement, this book is all you need to get the kids outside and revelling in the joys of nature.
