My mum bought the boys a ‘make your own insect house’ so we made it. You can make your own DIY insect house too but this was much easier for us. It’s a great present idea too.
The kit comes with everything you need including the pieces of wood and bamboo sticks, glue plus tow ladybirds to stick on the top. All you need to do is glue it all together, find some grasses and old leaves to stuff into the house before adding the bamboo sticks.
This is a complete five-star luxury pad for insects. They be happy under an old log or in a pile of leaves too, as we’ve been finding on our little adventures here there and everywhere for the 30 Days Wild Challenge, but it was nice to do something crafty with the boys and they loved making a little home for the bugs.
