Anytime Challenges

  • Build a bird’s nest; look for nesting materials like sticks and twigs, grasses and moss.  Can you build a nest that might tempt a bird? (2 points)
  • Packed lunch for a bird - There are a few hungry birds in this wood.  Can you make a nice packed lunch for them with things you find in the wood and leave it for them to find? Try making it in the Wild Wood Wicked Kitchen cafĂ©.  (2 points)
  • Magic feathers - Can you find a feather and un-zip it?  If you run your fingers down it, the feather goes all messy but if you run your fingers back up it zips together and becomes smooth again; the perfect way to catch the air to help a bird fly. (1 point)
  • Homing bird blindfold game
    • Find a partner. 
    • One person closes their eyes, the other is the leader.
    • Hold hands, and the leader should guide their partner on a journey to a special tree and back.
    • When they open their eyes, can they find their way back to the special tree? No cheating! (2 points)

    • Make up words to sing to a tune you know very well?  E.g. I’m a big bird, keep away from me, I’m a big bird this is my territory….
    • Birdsong usually consists of a few lines repeated over and over again, what would a bird in this wood want to sing about?
    • Video or record your song and post up on the website (3 points)
