Do you wish your kids would play outdoors more, get stuck into finding the biggest acorn, or pinecone, or collect all the colourful leaves they find on the ground? How about getting fresh air and maybe even getting a little dirty, because what’s playing outdoors without coming back home with grass stains and mud on your clothes? It shows they’ve had a great time and were able to let off all their steam, that they can’t let off sitting indoors on their tablets. Well, with Treasure Trails all of this is possible.
With over 1,200 Trails around the UK, you have plenty of choices to pick from and release your inner outdoorsman! All of their Trails are completely self-guided and outdoors, so you’re always in for an adventure. You can go on a treasure hunt or become a secret agent on a spy mission!
Right now, Treasure Trails is holding a fun-tastic competition looking for the number one kidult! Could it be you? Find out more about being a kidult below!
Hunt for the UK’s biggest kidult by Treasure Trails
The hunt for the UK’s biggest kidult is on, and we think they’re right here!
What even is a kidult, I hear you say?
First a language lesson. A kidult, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary, is basically an adult who likes doing or buying things intended for children. Meaning, that they like to stay playful, act like big kids and see the fun in absolutely everything. Are you one, or even “the one” that they’re looking for?
Next is the research. Kids are growing up faster than ever. Technology is such a prominent part of their lives, affecting their imagination and maybe even their attention span. For some kids, there is now the desire to be “grown-up”, quicker than what parents would like their children to be. Especially when compared to when they did as youngsters in years gone by.
Kids spend hours on their mobile devices or playing the newest games on game consoles. Whatever happened to playing on bikes, making mud pies and building dens and treehouses? Kids should be kids, scuff their knees and have bounds of energy ready to unleash outdoors!
But we embrace kidults all over. Treasure Trail’s company ethos is all about family fun! Outdoors, being active, exploration, digital detox, working together, and a big slice of imagination. Does this match yours?
Here are some info on how kids play nowadays!
A Treasure Trail is a great tool to be a big kid. Where you can explore the great outdoors, and search high and low for clues or puzzles as you hunt.
Lead by example to your children, and show them that adventure requires imagination, and you are full of it. Get into character, grab your super-sleuthing persona and have what is perhaps the best family day out in 2022! A Treasure Trail is for everyone.
They have also put together a couple of pointers on how to get into character, so you are well prepared! Take it as acting classes for wannabe spies, detectives, pirates, and of course…. Kidults. Check out what makes a kidult here
