Happy National Insect Week! To which I’m personally quite revolted by, but of course, we don’t tell the children that. Why not celebrate this momentous occasion by taking the kids out into the garden or your local green space to see what creepy crawlies you can find. Don’t forget to step back a few paces, and try not to panic when they pick up huge big fat slugs with their bare hands and waggle them inches from your face. Lovely! To help you on your adventure here’s a list of cool gadgets to help find those mini beasts.
