Stuck inside? Take your kids on an indoor safari!

Don’t freak out about bugs living in your home. Instead, let them teach your kids about habitats and biodiversity.

“I found a big one!” June screamed. “And it’s alive!”

With a flashlight in one hand and a pair of tweezers in the other, my four-year-old daughter reached for a harmless long-legged arachnid sitting in its web under the basement stairs. June’s normally pretty fearless when encountering bugs and other creatures, but right now her little face was lit up with a sense of purpose.

After all, we were in the middle of an indoor safari—for science. (And don’t worry, no bugs were harmed in this adventure!)
