Remember the days when childhood meant hours of playing outdoors and simply making your own fun? We believe it still does.

We've drawn up a list of 50 things to do before you're 11¾ and here's some you can do here at Trengwainton; discover what’s in a pond, make a grass trumpet, hunt for bugs, pick an apple straight from a tree or catch a falling leaf.
