We got one of the coolest review items to try and my boys were so excited to open it!  The Insect Excavation Kit by Discover with Dr. Cool is totally as awesome as it sounds.  The kit allows you to dig out 3 creepy critters from a beetle-shaped plaster block.  You get a an excavation tool, dusting brush and a magnifier glass to help you excavate the insects.  We found that the magnifier glass doesn’t really work that well, but the other two tools worked great!

I put newspaper out on the kitchen table and let my boys take turns on “digging”.  They were very interested in the whole excavation process and watched closely as each of their brothers took their turn.  The insects are safely contained in a resin so they are not damaged in the digging process.

You also get a little booklet with interesting information about all of the bugs as well as an activity book with games and puzzles!!  My boys really loved reading about all of the bugs and examining all of specimens!  We had a great time and can’t wait to check out more of the kits!!
