Child smelling a flower

If you have access to a garden at home, why not use it to entertain and inspire your children. There’s a surprising amount of wildlife to discover in even the smallest of green spaces. Hunt for caterpillars in the undergrowth and use our identification guides to identify what you find. Encourage butterflies and other pollinators into your garden by planting wildflower seeds ready for summer. Seeds can be bought online if you don’t have any to hand or call your local garden centre and see if they can deliver to you.

Building an Insect A&E is a fantastic activity for children. We are encouraging people to help build special areas to support butterflies and bumblebees with the help of Channel 5’s Dr. Amir Khan and enter a competition to win some garden plants.

Sign up for our downloadable resources and video lessons below, from home-made mobiles to creative colouring-in and a make-your-own butterfly kite.
