50 Ideas for #30DaysWild

This month The Wildlife Trust is hosting a 30 day long challenge for you to get wild every day with 30 “random acts of wildness”. It’s a great way to get kids engaged and outside in the fresh air and really getting stuck into nature. I spent a lot of my childhood outside, like most kids form the 90s did and although I’m a big fan of technology, sometimes you just need to put the games console down and get the hell outside. Getting your kids outside every day has a massively positive impact on them and I think it’s so important to get everyone out into the fresh air as much as you can so here are a little collection of ideas I’ve come up with to get wild this month!

001. plant some wildflowers

002. make a bird feeder

003. put up a bird nesting box in your garden
