Unearth the outdoors kid – Family Camping reviews

January 13, 2014 Off By Laura TMOT
Family Camping reviews has started a new campaign called unearth the outdoors kid. It looks like a great campaign to get kids to put down the computer games and get outside. As a child I spent most of my time outside either in the local forest or on the street playing with my neighbours. Having taken the bucket list questionnaire I was one activity away from being an outdoors kid and instead I am just an active kid. The girls are doing well already and all of the bold statements below they have already achieved but I hope to be able to tick a lot more off by the end of the year.  I have taken the Unearth the outdoors pledge and
will report back on how well we are doing at different times throughout the year. Why don’t you go and take the pledge?
