We have started to build our bug hotel, working together using our fine and gross motor skills to make progress. We started with a brick foundation, before moving our crates into place as a team, even using a spirit level to check! Over the past few weeks we have been busy collecting natural and found resources to ‘furnish’ our hotel and make it homely for our ‘guests’ to enjoy. We feel very proud of our work so far and can’t wait to continue adding to it, so if your child finds anything interesting whilst out for a family walk, please bring it in!
We look forward to seeing who visits our Bug Hotel!
