It's a fact that kids find bugs fascinating and this Bug Keeper DIY recycle project is the perfect way for them to keep those bugs under observation. Older kids will most likely be able to handle this on their own, but supervision may be required for younger children. This free how-to project only requires a plastic 2 liter bottle, 4" square of nylon mesh screening, a chenille stem, paint pens, 3" sinamay hat, ribbon or felt strip embellishment, glue and scissors to complete. Here are the step by step how-to instructions along with the face template for the pictured Bottled Up Bug Keeper!
NOTE: You can find sinamay hats at most craft supply stores or just click here to order from Amazon.
