Place the pictures of minibeasts provided in a series of secret envelopes. Pass the envelopes around a small circle of children. Ask each child to open their envelope and take out the picture inside, making sure they hide it from the other children. Encourage children to describe their minibeast by its appearance, special features and where it lives. Can anyone guess what it is?
Download a handy PDF version of this activity, along with the minibeast pictures, for you to keep.
