Go for a walk in a local woodland to collect items to decorate your hedgehog home with, as listed in the equipment list.
Have a look around your garden and decide where you would like to build your home – the best place is alongside a fence as hedgehogs tend to walk along fences to keep safe.
Take a look at the Hedgehog Street website to find out more about hedgehogs and why we should protect them.
A sturdy, medium sized storage box (around L30cm x W20cm x H20cm is ideal)
Logs, bits of bark, twigs, leaves, bits of grass (collected earlier)
You can find more on caring for hedgehogs over at our Wild About Gardens website, an joint initiative with the RHS and Wildlife Trust.
