For all those who hate creepy crawlies a new trail around World Museum’s Bug House might just give you a new insight and appreciation for smallest members of the animal kingdom.
Designed for young children the Nature Boy story trail is inspired by a real life six year old boy named Daniel Walsh, who calls himself Nature Boy because of his love for bugs and insects. The trail follows Nature Boy and his sister Eva, otherwise known as Bug Bully, through the Bug House as Dan explains to Eva why we should be kind to our bugs and insects.
Working with National Museums Liverpool’s Community Partnership team and illustrator Holly Langley, the new trail was created by young mums from the Children’s Services Teenage Pregnancy Support Service group at Ellergreen Children’s Centre.
Even the babies of the young mums had a part to play with the bug characters in the trail named after them.
