Bug Catcher Jar
Help your child make a bug-catching jar for your next walk or park outing. Begin by cleaning an empty plastic peanut butter jar. Soak the jar in water to remove the label. Then, cut a few holes in the lid with a knife or utility scissors. You can then let your child write his or her name on the outside with a permanent marker -- or scribble a few designs, if he or she's not writing yet. Grab your bug catcher, and head outside to see what you can find!
