Squirrel Go Nuts

How? Find a stone smaller than the palm of your hand and mark it with a pen (you could write your name or draw a smiley face).  Hide your stone somewhere in the woodland floor, just like a squirrel would hide acorns in the Autumn.  After a period of time, see if you can find your stone again – if you were a squirrel hunting for its acorns in the Winter would you have gone hungry?

Try – Hiding more than one stone in different places, or try longer periods of time between hiding and looking for it again.

Did you know?  Squirrels only find 26% of the acorns they bury!
