Maker Kit: Bug Science

This was one of the first maker kits I made. The original bug house was given to me with a praying mantis inside - they never picked up the bug house so I used it! Eventually it got very dirty and icky, but it was still intact, so this is a pretty good brand. The original set of bugs in plastic got very worn and chipped, so I replaced those as well.

This kit mostly checks out in the summer, when there's actual bugs around, but it goes out at other times as well, when kids are doing science projects. I don't put consumables in this kit very often.

Kit includes: 

  • Secret Lives of Backyard Bugs by Judy Burris (out of print): 9781603429856
  • Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Giddy Buggy Bug House Toy (purchased from Amazon)
  • Celestron 44409 3D Bug Specimen Kit #3 (Black, Orange, Brown) (purchased from Amazon)
  • Magnifying glasses - Excellerations - from a set purchased from Discount School Supply
  • Activity papers, coloring pages, stickers
