Unusual cuddly toys will be hidden in Stroud shop windows at the end of August forming a wildlife treasure trail competition for children organised by environmental charity Stroud Valleys Project.

Cuddly toysSVP Community Outreach Organiser, Katharine Hope explained, “As it is coming to the end of the school holidays we thought it would be a good idea to organise something for the children and came up with an English wildlife treasure hunt using  shop windows around the town.”

Katharine collected together a variety of soft toys representing wildlife, such as squirrels, badgers, and hedgehogs for shops to hide in their windows. The idea is that children are given a map of the town centre and go round looking for these stuffed toys in shop windows. Younger children will be asked to identify and name the animal, and older children will also be asked a wildlife related question.

The treasure hunt will start and finish at the SVP Eco Shop in Threadneedle Street. Children can collect a treasure trail map and questionnaire, complete it and return it to the eco shop. All correct entries will be put into a draw. The prize is a mini-bug house for insects to live in.

The Wildlife Treasure Hunt runs from Saturday 27 August until Saturday 3 Sept.
