Over the last couple of weeks I have been going through the National Trust's list of "50 things to do before you are 11¾" because Tom has now reached the great age of 12. Here's the next set to see whether he can better his score so far of 19/25. Link to Part One here and Part Two here.
25. Make a grass trumpet - he has tried but not actually succeeded in getting a sound. Luckily he has more success learning and playing the saxophone!
26. Feed a bird from your hand - I was going to say no here then I remembered we went to the zoo last year and fed what I think were cockatoos by hand (or they might have been cockatiels).
