- Small Cardboard Box
- Colored Papers – green (for bushes), red/blue/ yellow (for flowers)
- Cut outs of bugs
- Blue Paint
- Green Sawdust (for grass)
How we made this:
- I took a small cardboard box lying around in my class and cut out the open up side of the box. Then I placed it up vertically as seen in the pic.
- Then I painted the background blue.
- On the base, i applied a lot of fevicol and sprinkled green saw dust for grass. I let it dry for an hour or so.
- Meanwhile, I took some green colored paper and cut out grass from it. I then pasted it in 3 layers on the grass bottom as seen in the pic.
- Finally I cut out some flowers from colored paper and stuck on the bushes.
Here is our setup ready for the Bugs World:
What the kids did:
- I drew some bugs, colored them and cut out beforehand – caterpillar, grasshopper, spider, butterfly, earthworm, dragonfly, ant, snail, housefly etc. You can use printed pictures from books too.
- I laid them out in a plate.
- One by one, every kid came and placed the bug wherever they liked. I kept applying a little glue to each one of them.
Here is our little Bugs World:
Here are my kiddies who kept exploring the Bugs World every now and then..
