Play and Explore Bugs

Featuring an ant, beetle, butterfly, centipede, dragonfly, ladybug, spider, and woodlouse, this fascinating set of eight bugs provide children the opportunity to learn close up about the living creatures they will encounter in daily life without them scuttling or flying away! Insects and creepy crawlies open up the outdoor space in a fascinating way, as children are drawn into the life that is going on right under their noses. Go on a bug hunt, study any finds discovered outside, brush them off and clean them up. Make a record of what’s been found by taking a wax rubbing and/or making an imprint in modelling clay. Cast from a special stone mix, these bugs are durable for use outdoors and measure 80mm.
