50 things to do before you're 11 ¾
Remember all of the cool things you did as a kid? Climbing trees, flying kites and hunting for bugs? Well that's what 50 things is all about. There's loads you can do - at home in the garden, in your local park or at the places we look after for you.

A-Z of play
We have so many games, events and activities up our sleeve this summer, we're sure there's something you and your kids will love. We've put a few ideas in a handy A - Z to give you some inspiration and get you started. From Art to Zebras, check out the things that will keep you entertained all summer long.
If the heaven's open this summer, come indoors and enjoy some play time out of the rain. Teach the kids retro card games like snap and old maid, play us your favourite tune on the piano or learn a new game all together - hump backed zebra!
A must see this year is Cragside's new art exhibition Lux. There are seven artworks to see that reflect the importance of light and innovation at Cragside. Some very stunning pieces.
