As spring gathers speed and the clocks go forward to allow us more daylight it’s a perfect time to get out in the garden or some local woodland and do some bug watching.

Children are fascinated by bugs and love to pick them up and handle them so they can view them at close quarters.  Their different textures, shapes and colors will enthral them, let them count the legs and wings of different bugs and explain what each one is and what it does.  Take a digital camera with you so you can record all the bugs you’ve sighted and you can research together on the internet any that you’ve spotted that you are unsure of.

We love bug hunting too. In fact one of my book characters has a story to share about bug hunting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwO_XN5JCvo&feature=channel_vide...

Hope you enjoy the video! Happy Bug hunting!
