Spring is the perfect time to go on a bug hunt. Children love getting outside, getting dirty and looking for bugs. Encourage your child to look under rocks or behind logs. You can send them out into the yard or take them to a local park. Be sure to explain how bugs are important to our eco-system and have them observe the bugs in their habitat.
Before or (after) heading out on your bug hunt read Bug Safari by Bob Barner and make your own bug hunting binoculars.
