My girls have always loved the children’s book Snug House Bug House. Last summer the love of this book became so strong that my then four-year old constructed her own bug house. She worked for weeks on the project, and I must admit that it turned out just fabulous for such a little one’s construction!
This year our backyard is flooded with monarch butterflies. Now when I say flooded, I mean monarchs flying everywhere…getting caught in our hair, covering our patio table, swarming in the girls’ playhouse…everywhere. So my eldest little one decided that all of these butterflies needed a place to rest and sleep so she brought out last year’s bug house, added some new embellishments and tada….a snug house butterfly house!
