It’s spring!! I am so excited for nicer weather! We have been spending so much time outside lately! Natasha (18 months) is fascinated by insects and little critters. She is constantly pointing out interesting things that she notices when we are outdoors. I love her curiosity! While we aren’t doing learning activities with her, I definitely wanted to add this fun theme to our shelves – insects are returning to our yard and both kids are getting excited about it. This means I am sharing an awesome collection of insect learning activities with you!

Insect Learning Activities for Kids

Here is a breakdown of several awesome insect learning materials. I intentionally kept this list relatively small. I don’t like to create such lists with hundreds of materials. I feel like I would never bother really visiting each and every site as a reader. Instead, I chose to really dig for awesome and engaging activities to get you started, rather than overwhelming you guys.
