Get your child to explore all the cool creepy and crawly things outside with a cool bug catching kit for kids.
These bug catching kits allows kids and parents to take a closer look at nature. Parents can use them for teaching kids about the different bugs or you can simply let your child go free and catch all the little bugs he wants.
It may sound odd but these bug catching kits can actually help children who may be scared of bugs as well. Parents can help catch a bug and then explain the bug to the child and show them what the bug does and why that bug is valuable to us.
There are actually several bug catching kits and devices that you can choose from, so I decided to round up the best ones you can buy to help you determine which one may be best for your child. These kits make great birthday gifts or Christmas presents as well as can be used for science lessons during homeschooling or just a cool treat for a kid.
This is a fun bug catching set that comes with everything a child needs to capture the bugs as well as a nice examination tank so they can see the bug up close and learn more about it. The set comes with a net, wrist compass, tweezers, transfer capsule, viewsphere, and the examination tank.
It is recommended for ages 3 years and up although I imagine that younger children may not be able to capture the bugs but could also have fun examining them and watching what they do.
The examination tank is well ventilated so you don’t have to worry about the bugs dying inside of the tank. It is not only kid friendly but also bug friendly as well.
This set could be a great way to get your child outside in the backyard exploring what nature has to offer as well as a way for parents to introduce some science and insect knowledge to their child.
The name of this item may sound a little odd but it really is a neat tool if you have a child who is interested in catching bugs or collecting little bugs. The bug vac is safe for the bugs as it sucks them up through the hose area and into a viewing chamber that is detachable.
The bug vac can be an easier way to actually catch the bugs instead of trying to use a net or a set tweezers. It’s simple to use and even preschoolers shouldn’t have a problem using the vac to capture their bugs.
There is also an activity guide that is included with the bug vacuum to give parents and kids ideas on where and how to capture some cool bugs.
Kids will love using their little own vac to catch the bugs and parents will love watching their kids examine everything they find.
This bug watching kit concentrates more on the actual bug watching rather then the catching although you do get the tweezers to catch the bugs included in the kit. Also, included in the set is a special viewer that allows you to check out your bug from both the top and the bottom without injuring the creature. It also includes collecting jars that you can use to store some of your little bug friends as well.
This set would be great to use with the bug vac above as you can easily collect the bugs with t vac and then use the tweezers to transfer it over to the double viewfinder to further examine the bug. The double viewer does offer some magnification so it helps your child see the bug up close to even see the intricate details that the insect may have.
Kids will feel just like a scientist with this cool bug viewing kit and will want to go outside all the time to see what other insects they can find.
The neat thing about most of these kits is that you can use them for other things besides just bugs. For example, you could also use the Adventure Kids Bug Catcher Set to capture little creatures like frogs and toads as well. The examination tank is large enough to hold those small creatures.
The GeoSafari Kit can also be used for kids to examine other things from nature such as rocks, leaves, and fossils.
Bug catching kits are definitely not just for boys as I know plenty of little girls who would love to examine all the creepy crawly things outside.Kids of all ages from 3 year olds to 13 year old will enjoy hunting down bugs, catching them and then getting to examine them up close and personal.
