Send your kids out for a big beautiful garden bug hunt! You can grab our free bug hunt printable sheet below and get the kids outdoors on a mini beast adventure.
And if you’re out there anyway, you may as well throw together a garden picnic too and make the day even better.
The garden is a great place to get kids interested in wildlife, even tiny gardens will be packed with bugs for kids to discover and learn about.
