A practical project that will stimulate creativity and encourage an interest in the natural world. All parts are custom made and the nail holes are already drilled, so it just takes a hammer, a Phillips screwdriver and little time to assemble. Clear instructions make it easy for children to take the lead, with just a little adult supervision.
Once built the children can express their imagination and creativity by decorating the box with paint or markers, making each box unique and something for them to identify with over time. Place in a sunny, sheltered spot in the garden to give the bats a safe roosting site. As an extra bonus any bats you attract will eat lots of insects, including midges and mosquitoes!
Material: Custom-cut wooden parts, fasteners and mounting bracket.
