Bug Hunting in the Garden.
There’s no better way for kids to learn about the world around them than by getting out into it. Bug hunting encourages your kids to explore their own backyard in an open-ended way that will lead to adventures and imaginative play.

I recommend not to keep the bugs, and be very gentle! I think it is ok to hold the bugs, put them in containers to look at them (only for short periods) but always put them back where you found them :)
Happy hunting - Scott
PS: Be careful of the ones that may sting or bite!
