Go on an indoor scavenger hunt

Plenty of wildlife can be found in and around your home. Have a go at an indoor scavenger hunt to find out how wild your home is. Remember to look everywhere: out the window, the corners of your bedroom, that cupboard under the stairs where things like to hide!

Give yourself 20 minutes and see how many of the following things you can tick off the list:


  • Ladybird
  • Spider
  • Fly
  • Woodlouse
  • Cobweb
  • Houseplant

Through the window

  • Butterfly
  • Birds (how many different species can you see?)
  • Bee or wasp
  • Spider
  • Grass
  • Moss
  • Flowers
  • Trees

How many did you get? Try again tomorrow to see if you can beat your record, and challenge your friends to see if their homes are wild too. You could document all the things you see by keeping a list or taking photos.
