Children’s Nettle and Butterfly Box



Children’s Nettle and Butterfly Box

The children’s nettle and butterfly box is the first of our new special boxes, which will hopefully become quarterly Young Naturalist sets.

The box contains a 100% organic cotton T-shirt, screen printed with the beautiful peacock butterfly. Also included is a copy of our new book ‘Annette & Gretel – A Girl and a Nettle’ which has been written by Ian and illustrated by Ben. The book tells the tale of Annette’s encounter with a nettle, where she learns how important nettles are to so many of our native butterflies. The book is written in rhyme to make it more memorable and has lots of lovely pictures to colour. The box will also include two of our collectable info cards, which are A6 cards with illustrations and lots of facts. And last but definitely not least the box also has a plaster cast of a peacock butterfly. The cast can be painted or given a wash to highlight the details.

The aim of the new boxes is to give children as much information as possible about the importance of every creature, and how we can all play our part in saving the planet.
