50 Things To Do Before You're 11&¾ At Yeo Valley

Earlier this week, The Boy and I were invited to the wonderful Yeo Valley in the Mendips to work with the National Trust on their 50 Things To Do Before You're 11&¾ campaign. This was perfect for us as I've spent much of this year promoting the campaign through this blog and my outdoor play posts, and I also thoroughly enjoy visiting Holt Farm as it is a beautiful site.

Yeo Valley have partnered with the National Trust to help promote the outdoor play campaign, and during the course of the day we were given the opportunity to complete several of the 50 Things which The Boy thoroughly enjoyed. Many of these The Boy had already completed, however the one we haven't managed to tick off yet is 'hold a scary beast'; we did complete it when I placed a worm on his hand. It may not seem very scary to you or I, but to a four year old who doesn't like slime, it was a terrifying creature!

We had a great day in a wonderful setting with good friends. And what better proof is there of the fresh air being good for you than The Boy falling asleep on the way home?

    What a fantastic day! And I don't like wriggly worms either so da iawn to the Boy…I've heard of the 50 things to do list but think the kids and I need to get started on it instead of thinking about it!
    ps thank you for inspiring our trip to Cefn Onn yesterday :)

    Glad you had a great day. I do find it odd that my children do not play with the insects – I was always turning over rocks looking for them – and determining whether it was a centipede or millipede lol. Did he catch his leaves? That is a fantatic shot.

    I love the blackboard stations. A great way to cover so many 50things in one day. Well done on the worm, I think it helps having others around all doing the same, it makes it less scary and more OK to try. Looks like a great day of out door fun and a perfect Country Kids post. Thank you for sharing. Still smiling at that gorgeous trumpet blowing picture too!

    I love the concentration on the mushroom shot – nothing to tick off, just the curiousity of childhood and an inquisitive mind. Looks like a great day
