About event

Building insect hotels and feeders for small animals is great fun and an awesome topic for a non-traditional team building event. You will create something useful and beautiful and will feel great about the work well done. Moreover, you can make some children happy and install the hotels and feeders on kindergartens playgrounds.

Company event with real results

Building an insect hotel is a project where everyone will find his role. Those, who like to work with wood and woodworking tools, will enjoy creating the structure of the hotel, creative people will engage in furbishing the rooms of the hotel with different natural materials, and planners will make sure everything goes according to a plan. In a short time, you and your team will create a functional insect hotel that will be an expression of your artistic creativity and imagination. Most of all, your fully functional insect hotel will help fauna and flora in a garden or in the wild. You can decide to give it to a kindergarten, a school, a home for the elderly or anywhere else.

Building a hotel needs approximately 3-5 hours to be successfully finished. In case you prefer a daylong craft event, we encourage you to start with assembling a bird feeder (2-3 hours).

The course of the program

Our facilitators will divide you into teams of four to six people, will explain you the process, share the blueprints and give you important information on how to use the tools safely.

After this initial briefing, you will proceed to your building stations to create your structures. The blueprints for the hotels are unique, each building has a different number, size and arrangement of rooms. You can look forward to getting creative and get your hands dirty, using different woods and tools. Some of you might, thus, get their very first experience with small craft production.

After you finish the construction of the main structure, you will get creative and fill the rooms of the hotel with different natural materials, such as pinecones, little branches, old perforated bricks or reed. This will make sure that the inhabitants of the hotel can be as diverse as possible.

Professional event management

The whole event is led by seasoned trainers and facilitators, who are always ready to give you advice or help. Each team gets all the material they need – blueprints, tools, protective gear and materials for construction and filling.

How can insect hotels be useful?

Insect hotel is a beautiful decoration made of natural materials that will serve beneficial insect and your garden, too. The most common visitors of the hotel are ladybugs, earwigs or bumblebees. Your garden will also benefit from these insects making themselves at home there. They will pollinate your trees and flowers and can also stop some of the garden pests such as aphids.
