Try some of the tasks I set on PurpleMash. You can even design your own insect!

 Butterfly Painting

 

The beautiful patterns on a butterfly’s wings are symmetrical – that means one wing is a mirror image of the other.

To make a symmetry painting, fold a sheet of paper in half then open it up back up. Dab paint on one side of the paper, roughly in the shape of a butterfly wing. Now for the magic – fold the paper and press it down gently, then open it up to reveal a stunning symmetrical butterfly!

Find butterflies in the wild. Head outdoors on a warm summer’s day and look for butterflies basking in the sunshine.

If you don't have paint, use this sheet to design your own symmetrical butterfly!

Bug Hotel

 

Explore minibeasts around your own home by designing your own bug hotel. Think about the bugs you would like to see and what those bugs they need to thrive.

 

This video might help you know a bit more about insects in your garden.
