The weather is due to be good this week so get outside and complete one of the Scavenger hunts below.



This week the weather looks wonderful so it's the perfect time to get outside and start to identify different creatures in the wild.  You may want to identify birds, butterflies or even animal droppings.  Whatever you do, take lots of pictures of blog about it so everyone can see it!
