I am a huge fan of hands-on projects. When kids are able to use their hands, minds, and creativity, learning opportunities abound. We recently had the opportunity to try the  Excellerations® Insects & Spiders Learning Craft – Kit for 12.

My son and I were eager to dive into the kit for an afternoon of creation and learning! The kit contained such fun craft supplies. For a little man who loves art and science, this kit was a rainy afternoon made in heaven. Henry (a kindergartner), was SO excited to start crafting and learning with our fun new kit! I was impressed with the quantity and quality of the included materials. There were enough supplies for 12 insects and 12 spiders, and some fun embellishments too!

Not only will kids learn the differences between spiders and insects with this kit, they’ll also learn fun insect and spider facts! As my son and I worked, we were able to have a wonderful discussion. We talked about spider legs as we connected the pipe cleaners, and how spiders have eight! We wondered what it might be like to have eight legs! Henry learned that insects have 3 major body parts, and spiders have two. Our discussion was full of facts, wonder, and FUN! Crafting and creating with your kids can lead to such wonderful and organic learning spider3opportunities!

You can purchase the kit HERE. It retails for just $14.99, making it an excellent value.
