See and Share

CharlieHi! I’m Charlie. I love being outside and learning about new things. Each month I will set three challenges, to help you get outside and have fun too! You don't need lots of fancy things, or to be an expert, to complete these challenges - the main thing is to just have a go.

When you're happy with your challenge attempt, you could share it with WOW by asking a grown up to share it on social media. They just need to tag @WildlifeOWindow on Twitter or Facebook. You can then check The Window page, to see if your work has appeared!

Older family members can join in too of course! Over 18's can follow WOW on Twitter, and on Facebook.

Have fun!

January Camera Challenge:

In January, lots of birds find it a bit trickier to find food. This means they might visit your garden or bird feeders a bit more! This month, see if you can take a photo of a bird near where you live. This could be in your garden, balcony, or on the street where you live.

January Writing Challenge:

In January, lots of people make new year's resolutions - goals that they want to achieve in the coming year. See if you can write a wildlife related resolution. Maybe you will go on a wildlife walk at least once a month, or feed the birds every week. Feel free to make more than one, but try not to put too many down - you don't want to feel too much pressure!

 

January Creative Challenge:

Have you ever tried to make something out of an old cereal box? There are so many things you can make with them. You could draw some animals, cut them out and use them as characters to tell stories with. You could add different boxes and items to it to make a model of an animal. The card makes an excellent backing, if you want to stick photos on, cut them out, and use them in artwork and collages. Your challenge this month is to use an old cereal box to make something wildlife related. WOW would love to see your creations, so do share them with us if you would like to! 

If you need some inspiration - here is WOW's instruction sheet for turning an old Easter egg box into a lion:
