Silly Squad 2020 outdoor challenge

We are inviting children across Lancashire to take our challenge, find clues, make stories and get out and about near where you live. There are prizes to win and you can share your ideas with us on social media. It's all about noticing things on your doorstep and having fun with your imagination.

What you need to take part – a pencil and this quiz sheet.

You can do this challenge with family and friends exploring the area near where you live.

You can do the questions in any order.
