Yesterday we planted a tree with our children and extended family – a fun activity. We are now all looking forward to seeing it 10 years from now, thriving and big enough to climb!

Hopefully we will be able to teach our children a love of the outdoors and sense of adventure that the planting of  a tree promises.

Would you believe a recent study found that one in 10 Australian children play outside once a week or less! In addition, 70 per cent of parents said they played outside every day as a child, compared to only 35 per cent of their children.
