Bug Hotel Craft Kit
Build a Bug Hotel together for a wonderful addition to a school garden or outdoor space. The kits arrive complete with all materials, instructions on how to make them, advice on foraging for additional materials to include and clear guidance on how to position your finished beautiful Bug Hotel. Links to relevant online films for further information on the role of bugs and bees in our natural world are also provided to support the activity. Building your very own Bug Hotel will help pupils of all ages learn about the natural world around them and your finished structure will contribute to a diverse and dynamic ecosystem in your garden or outdoor space.
With the help of this kit you can explore the reasons why our indigenous wildlife is declining and what we can do about it. Making your own Bug Hotel creates a safe haven for all kinds of creatures and encourages wildlife.
As well as using the materials provided in the kit, you and your family can take part foraging for natural materials and include what you have found alongside bamboo canes inside your Bug Hotel. Once you have installed your Bug Hotel on a sunny wall, watch as solitary bees (which are safe with children) and other insects start to use the canes to lay their eggs and seal up the holes using mud or leaf litter.
