50 Things to do before you’re 11 3/4

Start your adventure here … on Gower!

Today sees the launch of our updated list of “50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4.  We asked kids around the UK to vote for their favourite outdoor adventures.

Here’s Kathryn our Ranger who has picked some fun activities from the 50 things list that we know will be great to do on Gower.


Calling all Gower Adventurers! …

Each month we’ll be bringing you three different outdoor activities:

  • A Perfect Day to be Out & About’ Challenge
  • A Quick & Easy Challenge
  • A Special Challenge

So, are you ready for May’s challenges? ….  Here goes!

May’s Special Challenge is … Climb a huge hill

Children in Dovedale, Derbyshire.How’s about a walk to Gower’s highest point? The trig point on Rhossili Down is 193m above sea level. And speaking of sea level, you’ll get a cracking view of the sea and Rhossili Bay from the top, so don’t forget your picnic!walk up a hill

While you’re up there you could try the “perfect day to be out and about” challenge ….  Roll down a really big hill

Pick a route without rocks and brown smelly stuff! (yes, we’re talking about animal poo!) How fast can you go?

If the weather is not so good how about our Quick & Easy Challenge –  Play pooh sticks 19

Anyone can play from your little brothers and sisters to your great grandparents.  All you need is a bridge (not one used by lots of cars!) over a stream or river and a stick for every player.

On the count of three, everyone drops their sticks on the upstream side of the bridge. Then run to the other side of the bridge to see who’s stick comes out first. Who’s the winner?!

Come back next month for June’s Challenges

Happy Adventures!

Kathryn 🙂
