About the event

Air B&B for butterflies! Let's build butterfly shelters/feeders. Feel free to buy a kit or materials and plans. We can all build side by side and share tools, paint and comaraderie. OR I will "test" build the A-frame shelter pictured and can purchase extra materials for anyone wanting to use that design. I'll have costs figured out soon. (Hope to keep under $20) (That design seemed to require the least skills and no jigsaw. But will need a chopsaw and drill which we can do prior for anyone wishing to follow us) We should be able to assemble at the park with a drill. Kids can paint them when done.

Here are 2 kits on Amazon that have a similar design but there are MANY others and can get pricey.

Like the one pictured, if I can't get materials for a custom build cheaper than this, I will go for this one. If anyone has scrap wood to donate, speak up!!

Great price! Simple to build for younger kids.
