Dare-devilish adventure ideas for children this autumn


Play-spirational ideas for children's adventures


Summer might be coming to an end but as autumn approaches Steve Backshall, from the popular children's show Deadly 60 and Big Blue Live, has teamed up with the Brave Bones Club to create a five-part video series full of dare-devilish adventures aimed at encouraging kids throughout the UK to take part in their own challenges.



It can be hard for parents to come up with play-spiration so the Brave Bones Club has some great ways to have adventures which cost next-to-nothing.

Enlisting the help of six thrill-seeking explorers, the Brave Bones Club invited children aged between 8-11 years old to enter a very special competition and star in the series with the legendary Backshall.

Episode One – ‘Super Shelters with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’:


Steve shows the kids how to build three very different shelters whether you’re trying to keep dry off the forest floor or pitching up in your living room. You’ll learn how to create an A-frame shelter using all natural materials, how to scope out a super spot for a hammock, and how to put up your very own tarpaulin.

Episode Two – ‘Critter Cribs with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’:



Steve teaches the adventurers how to build the ultimate critter crib. You'll learn about the top spots for birds, hottest hide-outs for hedgehogs, and how to build a natural den for lots of creepy crawlies.

Episode Three – ‘Tracks and Signs with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’:

Steve teaches the kids how to spot signs of animals in the wild. Whether it’s listening for birdsong; spotting tracks or finding furry friends hiding holes – there’s plenty of ways to work out where the critters of the forest have been hiding.

Episode Four – ‘Treasure Hunting with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’:

Steve hides three mystery hampers and our brave adventurers have to use their new skills in map reading to find them! You’ll learn top tips for surviving in the wild with just a trusty map and a compass.

Episode Five – ‘Bug Bothering with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’:




Steve shares three different methods for catching creepy crawlies of all shapes and sizes. You’ll learn how to bag yourself some butterflies using a net, how to perform the ultimate ‘bush whack’ and find out how to use a pooter.
