Printable ticklists of common creepy crawlies, great for bug hunts!
Go on a minibeast hunt in the woods, your garden or school grounds to see what you can find. They tend to like dark, damp places so investigate leaf piles, under logs and tiny nooks and crannies, as well as flowers and plants.
Be careful not to disturb them too much and remember to leave their homes as you find them.
