Bug week was so fun. Camille’s parents have the most awesome magical yard up in the mountains and we headed up there to read in the shade and have a bug scavenger hunt.
Here are the books we read:
“Up Down and Around” isn’t actually about bugs, it’s about gardens, but there so many different kinds of bugs through out the book. It’s fun to point out each bug and talk about each one and to see bugs in their natural environment.
We had each kid pretend to be a frog eating bugs and then jumping into the water.
We then had a fun bug scavenger hunt. You can find the free printable HERE.
We handed each kid a scavenger hunt paper and sent them out to explore.
They occasionally checked in to show us what bugs they had found.
But mostly they loved exploring.
This was by far the cutest bug we found all day. 🙂
We then headed inside for some healthy bug snacks. Ants on a log, grape caterpillars and butterflies made out of carrots and cucumbers.
