Autumn scavenger hunt

Posted on 29th September 2017

Autumn is a great time of year to explore nature. As the weather starts getting colder and days are getting shorter, there are many changes happening in the natural world. The colder weather triggers some of our birds to migrate to warmer regions, such as swallows, swifts and some starlings. Mini-beasts such as ladybirds and certain butterflies start trying to find warm spaces where they can hide over winter. Many animals are gathering food to store for the leaner winter months, including squirrels and mice. And of course the leaves of our deciduous trees are changing colour from green into the spectacular red, orange and gold colours of autumn. It is a great time to be outdoors with your children and to explore nature.

To help your children engage with the outdoors why not download our Autumn Scavenger Hunt sheet here and help your children find the items listed.
