The children at Wildlife Club were busy today making butterfly feeders with Mrs Greenhough. They are fantastic! We're waiting for a warmer, calmer day to put them in our pond area and hope to attract lots of butterflies.

You may like to have a go at making one for your own garden. The photo of our butterfly feeders may help you to follow the instructions...or you could ask one of our wildlife clubbers!

How to make a butterfly feeder

  • First design and decorate a flower head.
  • Then mark the flower head with a UV pen.

(The amazing science bit: Butterflies can see UV and are attracted to it.).

  • Cut out the flower head and laminate it.
  • Use a thin wooden BBQ skewer as a stalk.
  • Fold a piece of plastic straw in half.
  • Cellotape it to the side of the skewer at the top (not pointed end)
  • Next (with an adult) pierce the flower head centre and move it up the skewer to just under the attached plastic straw.
  • Carefully fill the straw with sugared water and place butterfly feeder in ground.

Wait and watch for butterflies.

Also...I love hearing about and seeing all the amazing finds the children bring in to share. This week, Charlie in Base 2 has bought in a little plastic pot containing part of a house martin's egg, a house martin's feather and part of a rabbit's jaw. The teeth were amazing! Piers brought in a very interesting book. We looked at the pages about the sea side, talked about the different sea shells we could see and what lives under the sand at the beech! I'm learning new things all the time from our budding nature lovers!
