young vets club
Here we create fun, educational weekly challenges for you to take part in during school holidays. From crafting a big blue whale from bottle caps to finding out about the seven most deadliest creatures, each week's challenge has something for everyone. Be part of the adventure and tackle this challenge below!
For the main challenge, you will need a coat hanger or sticks to make the frame for your mobile, as well as string or wool, paper, card or other material to make the bats from.
This week’s theme celebrates the fascinating world of bats. The last weekend of August is International Bat Night which aims to highlight the need for bat conservation and their habitat. Despite the negative stereotypes surrounding bats, they’re extremely intelligent animals and play an important role in our environment.
LET'S GO BATTY
