Featuring an ant, beetle, butterfly, centipede, dragonfly, ladybird, spider, and woodlouse, this fascinating set of eight bugs provides children with the opportunity to learn close up about the living creatures they will encounter in daily life without them scuttling or flying away! Insects and creepy crawlies open up the outdoor space in a fascinating way as children are drawn into the life that is going on right under their noses.
Go on a bug hunt, study any finds discovered outside, brush them off and clean them up. Make a record of what’s been found by taking a wax rubbing and/or making an imprint in modelling clay. Able to fit well in small hands, these bugs will inspire children’s imagination and excite young learners in their non-fiction research. Ideal for investigative play, they can be used to inspire the making of bug homes.
A fantastic addition to any investigative play provision, these bugs are one of our best sellers. Cast from a special stone mix, they are durable for use outdoors and measure 80mm.
Safe for age 2+.
