Build the World’s Tallest Buildings!

Remember the verse from “My Mummy is an Engineer?”

“My Mummy’s job sounds like fun,

Solving problems one by one.

Engineering is working in teams,

Creating real things that once were dreams.”

We’ve created two challenging exercises where you can work in teams to create and build structures and buildings, solving problems together. Put your engineering skills to the test, and see if you can build these two challenges!

Download the challenges below, and don’t forget to tag us on our social media showing us your work.

Become the Best Illustrator!

Do you love drawing and colouring? So do we! We’ve created a blank illustration so you can show off your creativity and create your own Butterfly Books’ picture.

Illustrators work to create our books, drawing our characters and creating stories. Being creative is super important, and even better, it’s great fun too.

Download our PDF below, get your markers and colouring pencils out and get creative. Don’t forget to engage with us on social media, and show us how great of an illustrator you are!
