The perfect resource

50 Things to Do is a perfect resource for agencies working with families, designed to improve outcomes for children. It is based on the simple notion that access to life-changing, fun, low or no-cost experiences with family, indoors and outdoors, is a great way to support children's development.


It is a free bucket list of ‘fun stuff', involving an app, website, and social media campaign. It provides you with the perfect resource for supporting your families


It can be used by nurseries, childminders, schools, health teams, cultural settings and community organisations, or by anyone who wants to improve outcomes for your young children.

Having fun together!

Our initiative is underpinned by evidence-informed impactful approaches to learning and parenting. What your families really need to know is that it is full of fun stuff to do with their children! Our focus on families having fun together is a deliberate approach, promoting an inclusive, non-judgmental way for parents to engage fully with their children.
