Winter Food Hunt

Winter Food Hunt

Squirrels are well known for storing food for the winter. Like nuts and acorns. They also have good memories to help them find their 'food safes' when they're hungry!

Could you survive as a squirrel?

  1. Collect some squirrel food - 5 to 10 acorns, nuts or seeds. If you’re having trouble finding some you can use small stones instead.
  2. Now find a good place to store or bury them. Here comes the test.
  3. Go for a walk or go and do something else, then come back later and see if you can find them.
  4. Or you can really test your memory by storing your stash in a forest or park, then look for them the next time you visit.

Let's hope the squirrels don’t find them first!
