Bring children closer to nature with 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ - the essential outdoor adventure book packed full of activity ideas for all year round.

Whether it’s watching the sunset, creating wild art or keeping a nature diary, this book has lots of ideas to help children connect with the natural world.

Bright and graphic in design with interactive elements and bite-sized text, 50 things has activities that suit all ages and provide inspiration for family fun.

The feeling of a snail’s smooth shell, the smell of damp seaweed or the sound of sticks splashing in a river: it’s moments like these that help children grow and connect with nature.

Published in support of the National Trust’s campaign of the same name, this book encourages children to care for plants and creatures while exploring their emotions and senses in the wild.

Why before 11 ¾?

Research tells us that if children become engaged in something before they’re 12 years old, they’re more likely to pick it up again later in life. We hope that by engaging children in nature during their early years, they will continue to discover and explore it in their adult years.

'No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced.'
