INSECTS IN THE GRASS

Children love to pretend to be insects. Encourage your child to act out some common insects, we sometimes find in grass.

Ants like to march through the grass. Let's be ants and march together across the grass.
Caterpillars like to crawl through the grass. Let's hook together and crawl through the grass.
Beetles like to scurry through the grass. Can you scurry without bumping anything.?
Grasshoppers like to hop through the grass. Let's hop across the grass like grasshoppers.
Bees like to fly across the grass smelling flowers and clover. Let's hook on our wings, turn on our buzzers and fly across the top of the grass looking for flowers.

Let your child decide what they like to do best on the grass and act it out.
