A campaign by Britain’s National Trust
The charity’s campaign features stone-skimming, mud-pie making and climbing trees as recommended activities for children who may not normally play outside.
The list comes after a report commissioned by the trust revealed fewer than one in 10 children regularly play in wild places, compared with almost half a generation ago. The report found that a third of children have never climbed a tree and one in 10 unable to ride a bike. (I thought bike riding was innate!)
