’50 Things to Do Before You’re 5 3/4′

A book with Winnie-the-Pooh is always going to be a winner, but

A book with Winnie-the-Pooh is always going to be a winner, but when it’s Winnie-the-Pooh sharing ideas for outdoor adventures and expeditions .. well, that’s even better!!

We stumbled upon this book ‘50 Things to do before you’re 5 3/4’ in @pavilionballygarvan and it’s fantastic!

It gives 50 ideas of things to do in the outdoors ranging from making a worm farm to cress growing … from taking a moonlit wander to playing Pooh sticks … and from making a forest in a bottle to cloud stories and hopscotch! .. All outdoors .. All fun!

It covers 4 main areas Art, Adventures, Curiosity and Challenges so there’s something to suit all kids.

You can pick random ones from the book or it would be a fun idea to write the ideas on lollipop sticks and pick them from a jar!

Our eldest has just turned 4 and 3/4 so she is intrigued and excited by a book that has adventures for her until she is 5 and 3/4 .. and beyond! .
Delighted with this find and the timing was great with our #outdoorfunproject with @thecraftymum.ie This will help us to continue enjoying and benefiting from all the fun playing and creating outdoors!

There’s also a little section at the back to record their memories, a photo gallery and a space for any doodles or notes they may want to make! Lovely one for the memory box in time .. a real snapshot of their awe and wonder for play.
