50 Things to do Before You're 11 and 3/4

The National Trust recently published a list of 50 things to do before you reach the age of 12.  Upon reading said list, I realised that I had completed few of the suggested activities.
The teenager has done most of them.  The three year old has attempted 12 out of the 50 - I have tried just two more than this, despite being twice the upper age limit.

So, with this in mind, the five of us decided to work our way through the entire list togther.

Wish us luck!

The List:

Climb a tree

Roll down a really big hill

Camp out in the wild

Build a den

Skim a stone

Run around in the rain

Fly a kite

Catch a fish with a net

Eat an apple straight from a tree

Play conkers

Throw some snow

Hunt for treasure on the beach

Make a mud pie

Dam a stream

Go sledging

Bury someone in the sand

Set up a snail race

Balance on a fallen tree

Swing on a rope swing

Feel like you're flying in the wind
