All the information it contains is available for free from the National Trust

It is a bit of a worrying reflection of the state of our society the NT feels the need to put together a list of 50 things any normal child (well at least if they are rural kids) will have done about 45 of before they start school. In fact many of things (for example eat a wild blackberry, go for a walk in the rain, go for a walk barefoot) are just part of everyday life. My 10 1/2 year old (and I'm sure most of her friends here in the Derbyshire Dales) found she had done 49 before ever seeing the list.
But if you do need the inspiration there is no need to spend your hard earned cash to get going, you can download the exact same list from the 50 things website or pick up a free 50 things scrap book (which my daughter thinks is great) at many National Trust properties.
