I first heard about the Meek family from Laurence. He’s a fan of their adventuring blog.
Then, they kept popping up all over the place talking about their year of roadschooling or their “EdVenture”.
Since we’ve decided to home educate and since wanting our children to be outdoors as much as possible plays a significant part in that, my interest in their journey was peaked.
So, when I heard that Frances Lincoln was publishing the Meek’s book, 100 Family Adventures, I was excited about reviewing it.
Tim, Kerry, Amy and Ella Meek’s book is beautifully printed and perfectly at home on a coffee table – the coffee table of someone desperate to get their kids outdoors.
It’s packed with ideas that range in difficulty, from cleaning up a local park to going on a night hike to sub zero camping to puffin spotting. There are intriguing ideas here – 100 of them in one place to keep you busy for years to come.
Having had a look, through, I think many of the challenges will suit our family better when our children get a bit older. At three and one, ours aren’t read for stand-up paddleboarding just yet! But there’s lots to get started on even now.
Talitha loves browsing 100 Family Adventures. I think she’s getting inspired.
