Lesson 2: Making a Paper Planter – Wasp Style

Date: July 4, 2016

Welcome to Lesson 2 of Metro Parent’s Virtual Camp!

How the heck can tiny wasps make their own paper to build a big nest? These winged insects may be small, but they are definitely little engineers with some major architectural skills. And guess what? You can borrow their methods to make a paper structure of your own. Better yet, by creating and using this small planter, you can also attract these important pollinators – plus bees and other key bugs – to your yard!
