Creepy Crawlers - Part Three

Here are the final activities we have done for June.  I had more planned, but what would summer be without spending some time bumming around?

We watched Smithsonian Critter Quest and one of the activities was making a bug collector.  Unfortunately we didn't catch anything and then it rained and rained and rained. 
3-Part Cards from Montessori Print Shop
They used a strawberry huller to transfer insects from one bowl to the other.  This activity took a lot of concentration and practice.
Ladybug and Mister made an insect garden.  Ladybug decided we should write letters and send them out to people, which was a great extension of the activity.
One of their favorite activities is stamping.  I always am on the lookout for $1 stamps and stamp pads.
Mister and Ladybug had to count the ladybugs and find the matching number.  It wasn't as easy as other counting activities because the ladybugs didn't have a lot of texture.
