50 Things To Do Before You Are 12

This is a great article from Active for Life. Especially with summer here, this is a great time for your kids to start scratching things off their own under 12 bucket list. And what about you? Just because the title says it’s for kids under 12 doesn’t mean you can’t do them too – come on, release your inner child!

Are your kids spending too much time indoors? The National Trust of England is taking a fresh approach to getting kids active outdoors by publishing a “bucket list” – 50 things to do in the outdoors before you are 11 ¾ years old!

Bucket lists have become de rigueur for adults looking to cram excitement and adventure into their lives before old age.

But a bucket list for kids? Are we really “over the hill” by age 12?

The truth is that our physical activity habits – and our connection with nature – are best established when we are children. The National Trust has recognized that fact and launched their bucket list campaign to get kids into nature at an early age.

The National Trust has also created an online, interactive bucket list so your child can participate and learn more.

Hats off to the National Trust. In keeping with its proud history, it is again showing leadership and imagination to promote the value of nature!
