Bugs gross me out. So, I needed to neutralize them for this set. In other words, make them pretty and rather unrealistic. I guess I'm doing a disservice to the children in my classroom by doing this, but I see it done in a lot of books too, so I'm just going with the flow :)
In my classroom, I have individual flannel boards for the children to use on their laps, on the floor, or at a table. That's where I'll have these buggies available. I might also incorporate them into a small group time and let the children help me build some bugs on the big board. Lots of great opportunities for vocabulary and imagination building with this set!
If you're a librarian, you could make these available at a felt table after a bug, spring, or garden story time.
