Here's an experiment that we would have done in school, but now you can make them at home as our Easter project! Mini beast hotels are easy and fun to make and monitor!
I've created a step by step guide below on how to make an easy mini beast hotel but there's some more complex ones if you have the resources, the links are at the end of my instructions :)
Once you have made them, I'd like you to fill out the table with your observations over the two week holidays. Have any bugs moved in? Which bug do you notice? Are they living there, or just visiting?
Anything you make, please post on SeeSaw, I'd love to see your Easter projects :)
1) First you'll need to gather your materials. You'll need:
A medium/large bottle
Cardboard (tubes are great!)
