MoB Kids: Insect Cities

Explore the secret life of our tiniest critters in this free downloadable MoB Kids activity!

Created by Sunny Side Up artist Amelia Hine, let your creativity run wild as you design, dream and play with imaginary cities. Can you imagine what Brisbane would look like if it were designed by ants or what kind of apartment building a honey bee would make?

Draw your very own buzzing insect metropolis and spark a fun new conversation about the city we live in.
