When the bugs are out in full force, don’t swat them away! Instead, take a few minutes and check out how cool they are. You can put together your own bug sensory bin or butterfly sensory bin to explore creepy crawlies a bit more in your home, group setting, or classroom. Sensory play is such a fun learning activity for young kids, and it has so many positive benefits!
