Bug Catching Fun

I was at Michael's the other day I saw this little bug explorer kit for $2.99 and didn't think twice to get it for my boy, he loves bugs!

We went to the backyard on a hunt for bugs, potato bugs, ladybugs, etc and put them inside of the bug house, that's what the little man called.

Then we grabbed the tools that came with the kit to look at the bugs closely.

I am sorry for the blurry picture, but the little man was too excited looking at the potato bug with the magnifying glass to give me a chance to photograph.

This was really a wonderful way to keep my son playing outside, first looking for bugs, then examining  them, so if you come across one of these kits, make sure to get it!


  1. Making a bug catcher can be a nice and easy way of collecting interesting small bugs (but not the dangerous ones, like wasps, bees, etc) and can be very educational for children. Bug catchers made using simple household items can take as little as 20-30 minutes and can be reused over and over again. See more http://survival-mastery.com/diy/useful-tools/how-to-make-a-bug-catcher.html
