No. 44 - go bird watching
Quarry Bank is home to all sorts of birds, both in the gardens and around Styal Estate.
Remember to be nice and quiet so you don't scare the birds away. When the gardens are open you can pick up a tracker pack with binoculars to help you spot the birds fluttering in the trees.
No. 19 - play pooh sticks
Choose the best sticks lying around on the Mill Meadow and head to the bridge. Get ready to race your sticks in the River Bollin.
No. 1 - climb a tree
Styal Estate is part of Quarry Bank and has thousands of trees for you to climb.
Make sure you choose one with strong branches and keep three of your arms and legs on the tree at all times.
No. 31 - hunt for bugs
Head to the woods on Styal Estate and have a look under rocks and logs to see what creepy crawlies you can find.
Be gentle to the creatures that you find and make sure you put them back in the home where you found them.
No. 6 - run around in the rain
Bring your wellies and your rain coat and run around the Mill Meadow making a splash.
Can you spot any animals brave enough to come out in the rain?
