National Trust's 50 Things to Do Before You're 11 3/4 at Beech Hill

From building a den to playing a friendly game of conkers, aren't these experiences in the outdoors an essential part of childhood?

We believe they are, but sadly nowadays we are spending less and less time in nature, enjoying the simple pleasures of just being outdoors.

The '50 Things To Do Before You're 11¾' initiative is in response to a report commissioned by the National Trust which highlighted research that fewer than 1 in ten children regularly play in wild places compared to almost half a generation ago, a third have never climbed a tree and 1 in ten can't ride a bike.

So, we had a think about how we could show just how much the outdoors can be. We've been compiling a list of just some of the easiest and most fun outdoor experiences we think all children should have had a go at before their 12th birthday.
