Invent an Insect
All the bugs crawling around are great, but why not invent an insect of your own? What does a doodlebug look like? It's all in your imagination when you create your own crazy bug critters!
What You'll Need:
- Cardboard or foam egg carton
- Craft glue
How to Invent an Insect:
Step 1: Cut three linked sections out of the egg carton to make an insect body.
Step 2: Add the insect's other parts: head, antennae, legs (six, of course), and so on, using uncooked pasta, straws, packing peanuts, buttons -- anything you find around the house.
Step 3: Give your bug a name. Then give it a story. Where does the insect live? How is it born? What does it like to eat?
