“Screen free” weekend challenge No 7- Find Nature’s adventure playground in the woods

This weekend we are challenging families everywhere to head off in search of their own adventure playground. Most Children become excited if you say you will take them to play in an amazing “adventure playground” – but if you say you are going to take them on a walk the response is often quite different!

So this weekend we are challenging families everywhere to head off in search of their own adventure playground.  Not a boring man-made one with a fence all around it, but one with endless possibilities, one far more exciting and ingeniously designed for exhilarating fun by nature; “The wild adventure playground“!

After all the rain and wind a week or so ago, quite a few trees have found it hard to stay upright.  We found this magnificent beach tree which had been weakened by a fungus.  But it’s fate was our gain as it became the best natural climbing frame ever!

See if you can find something similar; post pictures of your adventure playground up on twitter using #screenfree and #goingwildnet for a chance to win a signed copy of one of the Going Wild books.
