Children walking in the rain

No.6 run around in the rain

All you'll need for this challenge is a rainy day and yourself! Running around in the rain might seem crazy when you start, but you'll soon be splishing and splashing around like a fish.

Girl with a frog in her hand

No.30 hold a scary beast

Are you brave enough to hold a scary (mini) beast? Perhaps a spider, worm, woodlice or a beetle? If you are, then you'll have ticked off another challenge off your list. Remember that you're a giant compared to the creature, so be gentle, and put it back in its home once you've held it!

Children making snow angels

No.15 play in the snow

If you're wrapped up warm and in waterproof clothes, there's nothing better than playing in the white stuff from making snow angels to snow men, snowball fights and sledging. Snow makes everything seem magical.

A young family bird watching

No.44 go bird watching

Watch birds fly, sing, chat to each other and eat their food by finding somewhere quiet to sit, watch and wait. Just make sure you don't frighten them off, birds get spooked pretty easily.

A mud art butterfly at Lanlay, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales

No.18 create some wild art

Woods have pretty much everything you could need to create your very own piece of wild art. You could use leaves, sticks, acorns, mud, grasses, conkers, feathers or anything else you find to make some art.

No.22 explore inside a tree

Trees with huge trunks sometime have huge holes, making them great for exploring. We even have hollow trees at a few of our places, perfect for adventurers. Watch out for insects and wildlife though - lots of things like to live in the holes of trees, so you might end up sharing.
