I made a bug card/tag that I tied onto the handle of the tote. My lil' guy loved the bug so much, he made his own, so I added that too. In the pocket I added a little card that had all of the contents of the Bug Hunting Kit spelled out. I purchased a small net and attached a key chain LED light for close inspection. I also purchased a composite notebook to act as his "Field Journal" for keeping track of his close encounters with the creepy crawlies. I found a cute little bug apron (looked like a moth) from, of all places, the dollar store! I also purchased a magnify glass and fake cockroaches there as well. I bought two different containers to hold his finds so that he can keep them contained as he inspects the *icky* little things. Lastly I found some butterfly fact puzzle cards that were a perfect activity to top it all off.
I was determined to do a fun gift for my nephews seventh birthday. I racked my brain trying to think of the perfect idea and finally... I GOT IT! A Bug Hunting Kit. What little boy doesn't like inspecting insects?
First I "made" (I actually bought a pre-made tote from Joann's and embellished it) a tote with his name on it and added a pocket out of a bug fabric. On the back I added a little bug that peeks out from behind when you carry the tote.
