#beyondthebook Activity - Bug Hotel

In this simple beyond the book activity inspired by Peep Inside Bug Homes, you can create your own bug hotel using just a normal porcelain mug and things you can find around the garden!

To set up this activity, you'll need:

  • Porcelain mug
  • Assorted size sticks
  • Bamboo stakes (optional) - available at Bunnings
  • Porcelain paint to decorate mug (optional)

Step 1. Go on a nature walk to collect various size sticks for your bug hotel. It's good to use some smaller twigs, and some larger sticks. You might also want to use some bamboo stakes (available at Bunnings) as the bugs will be able to crawl inside.

Step 2. Have a grown up cut down the sticks/ stakes to fit into the mug.  

Step 3. Decorate your mug and hang by the handle on a tree!
