National Trust, Basildon Park – 50 Things Workshops

Nature Nurture worked with staff and volunteers at Basildon Park to provide '50 Things to do before you're 11 3/4' workshops.

Sessions involved 20 children and their parents Bug Hunting and Animal Tracking. The 50 Things Campaign is all about reconnecting children with nature. Research shows that fewer than one in ten of today's children have played in a wild place compared to half of their parents' generation. The National Trust decided to take it back to basics and highlight some of the fun activities children can enjoy and which their parents often took for granted, such as building a den, flying a kite and hunting for frogspawn.
