In last nights episode of Countryfile presenter Ellie Harrison joined in with some kids who were having fun in the great outdoors.

This is because The National Trust have recently compiled a list of fifty things kids should do before the turn eleven.

They believe that kids today spend to much time doors and they released the list because they say a third of children have never climbed a tree.

Some of the things Ellie and the kids from a Suffolk primary school did was to climb a tree and make a den.

On a Canal Boat Holiday your kids can have some fantastic outdoor experiences every day.

On a Canal Boat Holiday everyone can be involved in the choosing the route and add to the excitement of even before you leave home by finding out how the locks work and discovering a little history of the canals.

When you arrive at the marina you will feel a thrill as you see your Canal Boat for the first time.

What better holiday could there be which pleases the whole family the kids, under adult supervision, can even help to steer the Canal Boat and help to operate the locks.

The kids will love to go dipping and it is well worth buying some cheap nets, the type you see at the seaside, for this.

A Canal Boat Holiday is an excellent way of getting closer to nature so why not invest in a book on nature and learn some of the names of the wildlife or fauna you may see on route your children will be so excited when the recognise their first bird or wild flower.

Enjoy the stunning scenery which changes everyday and relax as you watch the world drift past.
