Help your child to learn about butterflies while also giving these graceful creatures a home with this Nature's Way My First Butterfly House DIY Kit. Because many of these lovely insects hibernate during the colder months, this house provides them with some much needed shelter while also allowing your child to observe them. Seven pre-cut wooden panels join together with the included hardware, and the four elongated slots on the front panel grant the butterflies easy access to their new home. Try placing the house as close as possible to flowers, and face the openings away from the typical direction of rain to ensure the butterflies stay dry. The pitched and overhanging roof helps defend against the rain as well. Placing sticks, bark or pine cones inside the house also grants the butterflies several clinging surfaces. The six included, differently-colored acrylic paints and two paintbrushes allow your child to embellish the house, stoking their artistic talents as well as their understanding of nature. Butterflies are attracted to bright colors, so encourage your child to get creative when decorating the house. The included instructions also feature a fun butterfly coloring sheet to give your child even more value, as well as a sticker sheet featuring various butterflies for extra ornamentation. Place the house on a level surface, or add a hanger to the back panel for wall or post mounting. Spend some quality time with your child and broaden her or his view of nature and construction with this Nature's Way My First Butterfly House DIY Kit. Assembly required.
