The Wildlife Trust
The Wildlife Trust is a fantastic website that has lots of wildlife activities and crafts for children to try, make and enjoy. They have a resources called 'Random Acts of Wildness' where they have lots of different ideas for kind or creative activities you can do help nature. Click on the link at the bottom of this page to access their fantastic website and resource. The Wildlife Trust also has a YouTube channel where they post a new video each Wednesday. The videos have a range of wildlife which are fun and engaging such as making a bird feeder, nectar bar or even a wormery! All of the activities from the website that the children do are also particularly good at getting them outside in the fresh air, particularly if the good weather continues. I will be giving 20 j2stars points for any Act of Wildness or Any Wildlife Activities that that you do so make sure you write about it or put any pictures/videos on your blog.

Random Acts of Wildness for Children
A Random Act of Wildness is any thing that you can do in an average working day to bring a little nature into your life. They can take a few seconds, a few minutes, or if you lose yourself completely, a few hours! The activities are so fun and include stargazing, keeping a wild photo diary, climbing a tree and many, many more. I will be giving 10 j2stars points for any Act of Wildness that you do so make sure you write about it or put any pictures/videos on your blog.
