Five Favourite Friday... National Trust's 50 Things To Do Before You're 11 3/4




Whilst everyone else is preparing for the weekend, I'm sat writing my Five Favourite Friday post (that'll teach me to be more prepared!). This week we're picking 5 things off the National Trust's list of 50 Things To Do Before You're 11 3/4. I've taken into consideration what I enjoyed doing when I was a child, how easy they are to do and doing them in the future with my son. You can check out the full list here, on with my 5 activities:

#6 Run Around In The Rain - Such a simple activity and living in Britain it's easy to find a rainy day. We've just had a storm (Doris) hit us over the past couple of days, and I couldn't resist going for a walk through a wet and windy park!

#14 Dam A Stream - Something from my past and something that I'm really looking forward to doing with my son at Carding Mill Valley, I spent many a summer there in the past trying to build a dam in the streams there.

#27 Go Stargazing - Another activity that I'm looking forward to doing with my son, heading out to the wild, lying back and watching the stars.

#41 Plant It, Grow It, Eat It - In recent years I've grown mint and strawberries, so it's definitely something I'll be trying this with my son.

#47 Cook On A Campfire - Not something I've done, but I'd love to do it, so I'll be living this activity through my son as he grows up.

There we go, but there are 45 more things to do on the list that I want to do with my son as he get old enough to do them. You can check out Nikki's choices on her blog, where she will be revealing next week's topic!
