You Will Need:
Non-breakable magnifying glasses, camera (optional), containers to momentarily house insects while examining them more closely.
Go for a nature walk. Talk with your child about possible places to look for insects (ex. under rocks and leaves, tree trunks, etc.) Take pictures of the insects you find and pictures of your child discovering them. You may refer to the photographs at a later time.
Magnifying glasses may be purchased at toy, discovery or stationary stores. Before or after the hunt, read books about insects or look them up on internet.
