The Crawling Bugs Assembly Kit is an innovative, hands-on way for children to learn about the common crawling creatures that make up an important part of many of the world’s ecosystems. Through entertaining creation and assembly, children can come to understand the parts of a snail, scorpion, caterpillar, ant, and spider.
While exploring with tactile fabrics to stimulate their brain and senses, children ages 3 and up can tap into their imagination through putting the body parts of each crawling bug together like a puzzle piece. As the child assembles the body of each bug, they will learn about each body part and their individual functions. This puzzle-like activity helps a child’s memory and language development, while also strengthening their cognitive and fine motor skills. As a child plays with this bug kit, they are learning about the anatomy of each bug and what the common body parts are among popular crawling bugs. This kit opens a child’s world to understanding animal diversity and various ecosystems. Additionally, through play with this kit, a child will also strengthen their cognitive and fine motor skills. It provides a fun activity for a child to play alone, with other children, or as a guided activity with an adult. The play mat rolls up and comes with a cotton carrying case for small pieces.
