~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own~
My kids could not wait to dig (literally) into this Insect Excavation Kit by Discover with Dr. Cool. We decided to spend a whole day doing fun science stuff and this kit was included. It was by far the favorite project.
The Kit comes with digging tool, brush and magnifying glass, an activity booklet, and an info guide.
My three older children just couldn't wait. We decided they would each take a turn until they found a bug specimen. We found out pretty quickly that the digging tool it comes with is small and best for little hands. So we also used a paint can opener for the other kids.
Getting to the different Bugs took a lot of hard work and patience. My kids were laughing and talking and playing around with each other the whole time. Each time one was found there was yelling and oh be careful, use the brush, etc. They really had a blast.
The excitement when they each found a bug was hysterical. They were so careful when they'd spot one. The loved all of the bugs, which are in a round acrylic clear piece. Each of them chose a favorite to keep. You really do use all the tools in the kit and the booklets are full of fun and useful info. Something to appeal to all of them.
The Insect Excavation Kit by Discover with Dr. Cool is a great deal at $11.99 and you can pick from other kits like a Dinosaur and Shark Tooth dig and many more. There really is something for everything! We will certainly be buying a couple to try later!
