BUT­TER­FLY FEEDER

Feed your lo­cal lepi­doptera and keep the kids busy with this sim­ple sum­mer ac­tiv­ity.

Take a pa­per plate and make small four holes evenly spaced around the rim.

Thread a length of string through each hole, knot un­derneath and tie to­gether.

Check your fruit bowl for any over-ripe fruit – ba­nanas are par­tic­u­larly good.

Load up the plate and hang in a tree or bush, and watch to see if any but­ter­flies come to feed.
