Make a bug house for the children.........................and the bugs !

I was really inspired by this handmade bughouse that I saw at Hidcote Manor gardens the other day, and am making my own with the children today.

A simple construction of chopped down pallets, stacked on top of each other, then filled with pipes, tubes, and bits and bobs, all encouraging friendly foe into the garden, and a beautiful decorative item to !!

I shall report what we create later ! :)

So dont delay, make one today !!

My little man made a small one with his grandpa last year but it was more of an apartment ... this one is definitely a hotel!

The carcass of a small chest of drawers would work too.

Great idea, I don't have kids but I love interesting critters to watch.
