Summer scavenger hunt

Head outdoors and track down summertime treasures.

Keep your eyes peeled next time you’re out and about. Can you collect all these signs of summer?

  • Look for daisies, buttercups and patterned petals
  • Can you find a munched leaf and a nibbled cone?
  • Hunt for fluffy dandelion clocks and blow the seeds away!
  • Count five different types of grass
  • Look out for green hazelnuts
  • Can you track down a four-leaf clover?

Remember to take a basket or bag with you to keep everything safe. What can you make with your treasures?

Be a good Nature Detective. Don't pick plants and flowers, look for items that have blown or fallen to the floor.
