We had Mr. R help review the bug dig kit. He was a little apprehensive at first because we said it had real bugs, and he was worried that he might hurt them while digging them out. We assured him that they would be ok. He is almost six, so he needed a little more assistance than his older brother did doing the gem dig kit. Little brother, Mr. C, was there to help supervise too. He asked Daddy for help about half way through. Together they worked on digging for about an hour. The three specimens are amazing to look at, Mr. R liked the fortune beetle the best. Because he isn't reading by himself yet, we did the activity book together. I loved seeing him get excited to learn new things and to be hands on with the activity. I think this is a great way to introduce kids to science.
