We did it last year, and for 2014 we have ramped up our ’50 Things to do before you’re 11 3/4′ campaign to get 200,000 kids playing outside this summer, following new research revealing that children aged 7-12 spend less time playing outside than any other generation.
Here’s a little video of our friend, comedian Hugh Dennis backing the campaign to get kids outside and reconnecting with nature during the summer holidays.
Visit https://www.50things.org.uk for more details and how you can get involved this summer!
Amongst the ones you can do in North Cornwall, you can complete #17 of the 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4 at the Old Post Office in Tintagel – set up a snail race in the rear garden. We’ve got the racetrack ready, you just need to pick a snail. On your marks, get set, go…slowly!
TOP TIP: keep the snails cool and wet to help them move well, and don’t forget to put them back where you found them!
