50 things to do before you’re 12 ¾ – Winners

Department of Conservation —  16/01/2020

Last year we asked Kiwi kids to share their favourite outdoor activities – at the beach, the river, local parks and backyards!

The 50 winning entries will be used to create a ‘50 things to do before you’re 12 ¾ activity sheet’ for all New Zealand families to get outdoors and connect with our beautiful nature.

Check out the winning entries below!

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition, you can view and share the winning entries on our Pinterest board.

The final resource will be available to download on the DOC website from Autumn 2020.

    What awesome designs!! It was a bit of work in class to get them finished and sent off but what a wonderful initiative!!


    Well, that just set me up for the day! Kids who love nature – fills my heart with joy, that does! (And well done to all those parents, friends, teachers, et al, who take our kids outdoors …)
