How to make a bug diorama

Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 21:06

First you need a stash of boxes, yes, that is where all the lids to the photocopy paper boxes went. Add some coloured paper, googly eyes, glitter and a little advice from the bug ladies.

Combine those elements with enthusiasm and a lot of creativity and see what wonders you can come up with!

Summer Reading Club is almost over for another year and our woollen web is finished. As I admire all the wonderful contributions our club members made, I shall sit back and ponder what GIANT and unruly things can be made to take over Mill Park Library next school holidays. Anyone for a life sized dragon? A Rocket Ship? An all encompassing circus tent?
