If your children are fascinated by creepy crawlies, this is the game for them.
What You’ll Need:
Magnifying glass
Soil and leaves
The Game:
  • Place some dirt and leaves into the bottom of a jar and poke some air holes in the lid.
  • Look for insects in the garden, paying attention to flower beds, bushes and the underside of stones.
  • Once you have found an insect, scoop it up with the spoon and carefully put it in the jar.
  • Keep the insect for a day and examine it using the magnifying glass.
  • Remember to release it back into the garden when you’re finished.
