Here are the competitions/activities you may wish to take part in and enter:
BUILD A BUG HOTEL

The image below give you some ideas- they're a little bigger than you may create but it gives you an idea of what you can use to make it.
MAKE A BIRD FEEDER
Create, build or decorate your own bird feeder that robins, blue tits, wrens or any number of garden birds would love to feast from!
You could use natural resources or materials you have at home. You may want to make a single feeder or a bird feeding station!
CREATE A NATURE GARDEN
Dedicate a small section of your garden to nature and the animals that visit it! Add a small area of water for bees or birds to drink from, add natural materials insects can call home or even add a box for a hedgehog.
DECORATE A BIRD BOX
Create a lovely home for a family of birds by decorating a bird box. You may choose to build your own bird box to decorate or decorate one that is bought.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you use paint or pens that can stay out in the rain.
CREATE AN ECO POSTER
Pick an Eco topic that you are passionate about and create an eye-catching poster that informs people on your topic of choice. This could be using less electricity, recycling more, reducing the amount of plastic used, reducing greenhouse gas emissions or reducing deforestation for example.Whatever topic you pick, make sure your poster is really eye catching and gets your message across. You could do this on paper, card, on the computer or in any inventive way you like!
We can't wait to see your entries and everything you create to help our environment!
