There’s plenty of outdoor adventures to be had with our list of 50 things to do before you're 11¾. How many can you complete at Maidenhead and Cookham Commons?
Here's our pick of the 50 things to do and the best places to do them.
Head to the woodlands at Maidenhead Thicket , where you’ll find branches galore to build a perfect den. Choose a dry flat spot for the most solid build.
Pack your magnifying glass and search under rocks and in mud around the commons. Cockmarsh is a good place for dragonfly spotting in summer.
The Commons are a haven for wildlife – keep your eyes peeled and listen carefully. To get a closer look, take your binoculars and don't forget your camera for pictures.
Pick up sticks or fallen leaves and lay a trail for your family to follow. Please don’t pick sticks from living plants or trees though.
Put on your trainers and walk or even run up Winter Hill. Take a moment to admire the views over the Thames Valley when you reach the top.
Put on your wellies and find a muddy spot. Stones, leaves and twigs are great for decorating, but remember, a mud pie never tastes as good as it looks.
Pick a wide blade of grass from the meadows at Cockmarsh to create your very own trumpet. Two hands and a big breath are all you'll need.
The Causeway Bridge at Cookham Moor is a great place to play with friends. Don’t forget to mark your stick.
With lots of wide open spaces, Pinkney’s Green is the perfect place to fly a kite on a windy day.
