Bugs are beautiful…. even before they become butterflies.
Although gardeners aren’t always keen on caterpillars eating their crops, we do love watching the fluttering colour of butterflies in the Gardens.
Eric Carle’s famous book – The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a favourite of ours. Here are some lovely colouring pages and worksheets supplied for free by one of our suppliers (earlyyearsresources.co.uk) all based on that lovely book.

And, you can see and hear the book, read by Eric Carle himself here below. You don’t have to share the experience with a young one…but you can 🙂
Anyone can join them for a no hassle, not pressure drawing session – whatever your ability.
As the seasons progress BSBA will record the life cycle of our plants… why not come and have a go yourself. They will be pleased to advise and support… or just leave you to your own devices.
Bring your own materials or take advantage of some basic pen and paper we’ll provide.
Normal entry fees apply but materials and support are free
