Hunting for bugs
There are lots of insects and bugs to discover in your garden. A minibeast hunt is a good way for the children to get up close to nature. Minibeast, bugs insects....whatever you want to call them are fascinating and wonderful and are to be found everywhere
Bug hunting gets the children out in the fresh air, encourages their observation skills and it gives them a chance to get "hands-on" with wildlife.
Working out which insect is which is no easy task. Children develop their observation skills by noticing the characteristics of each creature and how to compare them with others.
Patience is the key. Children soon learn that the reward for being quiet, calm, and patient helps them to discover more interesting insects. I am sure that you have noticed that patience is a very tricky skill for children so any fun opportunity to practice this is golden!
Insect hunts are also a brilliant opportunity to get children talking. Many are excited by their finds and are happy to share their findings with their friends
Our new friend Mo loves bugs and he has obviously learned the lesson of patience. So cute!
