Mr. Ben is obsessed with an ant pile we have in our backyard, and other sorts of creepy crawly things.
I'm calling it summer homeschool science and letting him observe the little critters, before they eventually get relocated by the lawnmower or the sprinklers. If you think about, he's outside, he's learning, he's enjoying nature, and he's not watching television, so it's definitely a win-win situation. He's been looking up fascinating facts about bugs too, although he still refuses to help when we find spiders.
Orkin has given me a chance to give away a Backyard Explorers Kit for your own little bug aficionado! The kit includes The Orkin 9-Page Activity Bug Book , Orkin Bugview Bug Catching Tool and Magnifier and a pair of red and black Summer Wayfarer Sunglasses, perfect for your little entomologist!

While you're at it, the new “Bug Wisdom” video series (also featured in the app) is a reminder that some of life’s biggest lessons come from small places. Bugs are smart, curious creatures – we humans can learn a lot from their ways. Ben loved the ideas and the video!
