Making insect hotels & clay animals

2pm to 5pm Saturday 26th May 2018 Nature Vibezzz ran a free family forest school activity in Knights Hill Wood West Norwood London. The activity started with bug hunting around the woodland site with the children finding a wide variety of creeply crawlies. The children was shown various technquies to find aphids, spider mites, caterpillars & spiders living in trees plus slugs, worms, beetles, centipedes, woodlice, snails and other inects living under rocks or logs.

The children also enjoyed colouring insect pictures and rope swings / climbing before our main activities started. On this session the children finished the insect hotels started on our last session, this involved measuring, sawing and drilling. The insect hotels was also filled with natural furniture to make a perfect home for lots of bugs.

The children also made animals from clay, either added them to the hotels or taking them home to look after.

Come and join us this Saturday for more fun in the woodland looking for insects and building homes for them.
