  1. Countless Hours Of Fun And Learning Ahead!

    Posted by Deborah on 27th Jun 2017

    We got this to go along with the Lapbook, and then got the eBook to go with it. My kids love all these.

    My favorite part of this is how tough it is. My young, energetic son is always breaking things and suffering a broken heart, but he is now the official carrier of the bug catcher when they go out exploring. He can't break it easily and he finally gets to be the star--that means so much.

    I love how it has breathing holes on the top and the top serves as a magnifying lens. There are countless hours of playing and learning ahead of us this summer!

  2. Have fun this summer

    I bought the ReCAP Bug Catcher kit for my grandson. I love the construction of it. The lid is perforated for whatever you catch to breathe and it's a magnifier for closer viewing. The jar is plastic so it won't break if dropped and it's lightweight.
    I like that it glows in the dark, too, just for more fun. Price was reasonable and it came with a downloadable activity book so we can learn more about nature even when we can't be outside.

  3. Such a neat product!

    We live in the woods and my kids are always looking for something to put the bugs in they find. This is perfect! Well made, cute and perfect for those little critters the kids are constantly collecting!
