Then again, bugs often draw us closer—with their colors, their behavior, and their tenacity.

On Saturday, June 28th, Kidspace welcomes children ages 5 to 11 to participate in a “Bug Hotel” workshop.

A bug hotel is part garden art and part habitat for beneficial insects. Participants will be guided step-by-step on how to create “rooms” for their potential bug guests with natural materials including hollow stems, twigs, bark, leaves, lichen, and blocks of wood drilled with holes. We will learn about beneficial bugs for our gardens and how different types of bugs live, feed, and rest. (KidspaceMuseum.org)

Where else could your child make a guest room for a bee or a bunk room for some slugs?
