How to make a bug hotel.
Bug hotel? Don't mind if I do!
Wanting something to do this week?
Children chomping at the bit to do something?
Well I have the answer,
A Bug hotel!
This can be the end to a great day of foraging in the park for twigs, leaves, bark, stones and what ever else those little mini beasts call home.
We used an old plastic plant pot turned on its side as the hotel.
Fill it with all your finds, we all so used an old egg carton and a cling film tube cut in 3 pieces. This helps to make little cracks and crevices for the mini beast to hide in.
Dylan asked me to make a sign to welcome the bugs ha ha; well you've got to haven't you!
There you have it a fun way to spend the afternoon, getting dirty, messy and best of all having fun!
Don't forget to keep checking what you have in there it's fun and teachers the children all about the wild life in your garden.
