GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!
Families are invited to stop by McLean Teddy Bear Park anytime between 2-4 pm to try to complete many of the activities on the UK National Trust’s list of “50 Things To Do Before You are 11 ¾”.
Our society has raised an entire generation of children who do not spend much time outdoors. Research is showing that inactive, indoor living is affecting children’s physical, mental and emotional development. In 2012, the United Kingdom’s National Trust launched a nationwide campaign to encourage children to get outside. They created a list of “50 Things To Do Before You are 11 ¾”. The list includes many of the outdoor activities that once de- fined childhood but are now sadly missing in children’s lives.
Families and adults who are not ready to grow up (like me!) are invited to join us this year – once each season - as we try to complete many of the activities on the National Trust’s list. Meet us this spring on Sunday, May 7 at 2:00 pm at McLean Teddy Bear Park. (A rain date is scheduled for the following Sunday, May 14.) Wear old clothes and shoes! Be prepared to have oodles of fun as we make mud pies, look for frog eggs, fly kites, and roll down the big hill. Let’s “Go Outside and Play”!
