Steve Backshall, from the popular children’s show Deadly 60 and Big Blue Live, has teamed up with the Brave Bones Club to create a five-part online video series of dare-devilish adventures to encourage kids of the UK to embark on their own this autumn. We are huge fans of going outside and exlploring the great outdoors and as these videos show - you don't need to spend a fortune to do this.
Enlisting the help of six thrill-seeking explorers, the Brave Bones Club invited children aged between 8-11 years old to enter a very special competition and star in the series with the legendary Backshall. I'd love to hear what you think of the videos and which ones you are going to re-create with your own children.
How to build your very own shelter
Create your very own 'Critter Crib' and a natural home for creepy crawlies
How to look for animal tracks
Map reading and surviving outdoors with a map and compass
How to successfully catch creepy crawlies
Our favourite video is 'how to build your own shelter'. If you live in the North East, Wallington Hall has it's very own den building area which will be the perfect place to put Steve's hints and tips into practice.
Will you be heading outside for any outdoor adventures this Autumn?
