Are you busy planning how you are going to keep your kids entertained over the summer holidays?

Take a look at The National Trust’s ‘50 thing to do before you’re eleven and three quarters’for some inspiration on ways for your children to make the most of the great outdoors. Choose an activity from the list or think up your own to enter our ‘Little Explorer’s’ summer competition, and you will be in with a chance of winning our lovely BuzzyBee backpack for your busy little bees!

The National Trust campaign includes loads of great challenges for young kids to keep them amused during the summer holidays, like making a mud pie, picking blackberries growing in the wild or playing conkers, as well as bigger challenges like building a raft and catching a fish with a net.

Complete with lunch bag, bottle and cutlery holder they are perfect for busy explorers on the move. Further additions like wipe clean linings and easy webbed grab top handles further add to their practicality, and the fun print design is sure to be a hit.
