Red Squirrel

Challenge 2: Red Squirrel Drey

The second challenge is to design and build a Red Squirrel Drey which is safe from Pine Martens.


We have provided an activity worksheet for each project to download.

The most important part of any design and build project is the planning stage, so have a good think about what you are going to do and draw some designs so you are sure of what you want to achieve.

You will have an opportunity to Ask an Expert if you have any questions.

Please use Ask an Expert if you need to - but also call your extended family and ask for help and ideas if you think that would help.

Why not send us a photograph to update us on how you are getting on? Or even a video explaining how you came to your final decision.

We cannot wait to see your challenge entries!

Send Your Project Photograph!
