Leaders visited Congleton 1st Beaver and Cubs groups to talk about ‘Giving
Nature a Home’.
They discussed the work of the RSPB and the importance of looking after nature
in our own gardens.
All the children identified real-life examples of man-made homes for wildlife
and the animals they were designed for.
The children then made bug bungalows from a selection of natural and recycled
materials . These will provide wonderful overwintering habitats for insects and
other tiny invertebrates.
Cubs designed animal homes for a woodland habitat and placed them in suitable
sites on our woodland poster.
The sessions were rounded off with a running round game that illustrated how
positive actions for nature benefit wildlife.
