Little Inventors

During these times of isolation where we are not always able to enjoy our parks as we normally do, we want to celebrate the wonders and benefits of our natural world and invite you to help us!

Use our wildlife challenge sheet to explore some of the animals in Alexandra Park, choose one to help and get drawing!

The team at Alexandra Palace will look at all of your inventions and let you know what they think of them, and your idea could even be chosen to be made real in an installation in the park itself!

Can you imagine seeing your wildlife idea in action??
