Whatever the weather, there’ll be plenty of family fun on offer during February half-term at places we look after. Go in search of wild flowers and bugs or collect shells and stones to create wild art. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a great day out.

Does it feel like ages since you explored the great outdoors?

Well guess what, the feeling’s mutual. Nature misses you. But don’t despair – now’s the perfect time to do something about it.

We’ve put together a list of ‘50 things to do before you’re 11¾‘ along with some great places to do them. We want to encourage kids to get mucky, discover their wild side and get closer to nature.

Natural childhood

Every child should have the right to connect with nature. To go exploring, sploshing, climbing, and rolling in the outdoors, creating memories that’ll last a lifetime.

According to data from the RSPB just one British child in five is ‘connected to nature’. Time spent playing outdoors has halved in a generation. Only one in ten children regularly play in wild spaces. Getting out into nature is good for children’s physical health and mental wellbeing, but getting children back to nature is good for the planet too.

We miss nature… and nature misses you

 Children have never been more disconnected from nature.

A healthy environment relies on people who care. People who spend time in natural spaces as children grow into adults who care more about environmental issues and seek out natural spaces.
