Plastic container to contain the roly-poly bugs
This is a fun spring and summer activity. Children love pill bugs (also known as roly-poly bugs), and these bugs become good pets for a little while. On a nice day, take a walk outside with your kids, and keep your eyes on the ground for any pill bugs. We usually find ours near the edge of the sidewalk. Put a couple bugs in a plastic container with holes punched in the top or in a bug jar. Make sure your kids don't leave the bugs in direct sun or drown them in too much water. And be sure to let them go after a little while!
