Butterfly Gardens


Natural habitats and ecosystems are continuously being disrupted by human activities. This has a detrimental effect on our environment. Additionally, children are spending less time outdoors and more time in front of digital screens. Being disconnected from nature, children may not become aware of the importance that natural habitats and ecosystems have on the environment.


Butterfly gardens provide intriguing natural settings that can promote excitement, curiosity, and joy in children. A garden can be created by planting a variety of flowers that attract butterflies. Butterflies are drawn to the colorful and scented flowers to drink their nectar. Pollen sticks to the butterfly and is transferred as it moves from flower to flower to drink more nectar. This provides an opportunity for children to learn about the pollination cycle and the role that natural habitats play in ecosystems.
