Large critters will no longer be afraid of the little ones!
Critters, bugs; whatever cute name we give them, we’re sometimes very scared of them! But if we stop for a minute, we’ll discover a fascinating world! Let’s pique your curiosity of insects with three exciting workshops, which includes hunting for live specimens and making an insectarium that they get to take home! Caution: may increase vocations in entomology…
On the menu:
1) Insects (60 min)
Ask the kids to bring an empty shoebox for the next step.
In case of rain, steps 2 and 3 will be reversed.
2) Insect hunting (60 min):
We’ll set out in search of adventure to capture live specimens! We will supply the nets and pods for capturing the insects.
3) Insectarium (60 min):
Youths build their own insectarium using a cardboard shoebox to place the captured insects and freeze them in the next step.
