Bug-gy Safari

ages 2-6


Plastic container to contain the roly-poly bugs

Activity Detail

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!

Make sure to put some soil in the jar or else they will not last overnight.

Great opportunity to get outside with your little one(s) and teach them to be gentle to insects and the like. Also, it's a great chance to teach and model some earth friendliness.
