Scarab beetles are also known as dung beetles. This is because they roll up dung from other animals and use it to lay their eggs in. When scarab beetles hatch they feed off the nutrients in the dung until they grow enough to leave the nest. Yuck!

Whether it’s their good luck charm or their gruesome habits, these beetles are great fun for any Egyptian enthusiast to make! Print out our template and follow our easy step-by-step guide to get started.

Using natural resources for activities is a super fun way to teach children about the world around them and look at objects in a different way!

Our children are growing up in an age with technology at the centre of it, at BKD we like to encourage kids to put down the ipads and get creative! Children love to play outside and collect flowers, pebbles, leaves or anything they can get their hands on, so why not use it?

  Painting pebbles is a great way to end a day at the beach or a trip to the forest. Your Mini Baker will love collecting and admiring all the different shaped stones. Why not get them brainstorming their ideas whilst doing this, ready for when they paint them later.
