My efforts


Made these with my little girl, all for our own garden image


Simple little birdhouses (roof to be added and painted/stained)



Hopefully this will benefit? Old log with varying hole sizes.




Our bird hotel as my girl calls it, dual level accommodation.




This is my ongoing insect hotel, going to fill each section with various materials (bark, bamboo, sticks).

    Get them interested early, and they'll be interested for life.image

    That's my plan - get them caring now, little boy (nearly 2) was out with a massive worm the other day, haha making sure it found its way back to some mud!

    Once they're a little older they will get there own patch of ground too, let them grow what they like image

    Can't wait to finish the insect hotel image - actually going to be a mothers day present (my little girls idea to make).


  • Hi Luke, I love your hotels. They look fit enough for you to make a small business out of them.

    Brilliant! It's so good to make time to do stuff like this with your children. They'll remember it forever. image

    Thanks Willowkitten - I will be honest I'd love to make and sell them, going to pop to a local nursery to see if they would like to sell them.

    Agree, I don't false either, let them run with it image
