Hide and Seek: Join the Dots

"To Camouflage" means to hide or use a disguise. At the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History there are lots of animals on display that use camouflage to blend in to the places where they live.


Download and print this activity and have fun finding the animals hidden in a South American rainforest. Discover more about these masters of camouflage.

When you have found out how to spot these hidden animals, why not let us know how you got on by emailing educationnh@museum.ie or post a photo online through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MuseumAtHome.

This activity is designed for children aged 8-12 years old and is curriculum linked to the SESE Science Curriculum. This can be completed at home, as a family activity, or used by Primary school teachers and pupils.
