Kids are so amazed by insects and other arthropods! Did you know...
Insects are unusual, amazing, strange, cool, weird, and unique - no wonder children are so fascinated by them! Our Incredible Insects Activity Kit increases awareness of "bug life" as young entomologists learn to identify the major groupings and the similarities and differences between insects and other arthropods. Our Incredible Insects Activity Kit provides a "glowing" firefly craft to reinforce the learning and includes everything you need! Each participant decorates a body and wing pattern, applies antennas and inserts a glow stick. Turn out the lights and you have a fantastic firefly!
Ages 6 and up.
