The Amateur Naturalist - Review and Giveaway!



The Amateur Naturalist  has terrarium kits that are completely cool!! All materials you need are included!  It is so easy and fun, and now we have a great science project that can be displayed in the school room! 

We received the blue weevil bug.  And, I must say, this completely exceeded my expectations, down to how it was packaged!  Take a look!! ---->


So excited to unwrap it!!

All directions were very clear and the pictures were bright! Included was also a fact sheet about our bug!

 Look at our blue weevil!

The finished project that the kids completed!!


What kid wouldn't love one of these?? These are amazing for a homeschool science class, a gift for a teacher, or a birthday party!! I could totally see the kids having a blast putting these together at a party & being able to take the finished project home! 

There are several different options available (of which we will be adding to our collection!!)



Take a look at this gorgeous butterfly! How cool would these be to be given out as favors at an outdoor wedding??



Or how about this Horned Beetle!!!  Amazing!


Now, The Amateur Naturalist is generously giving away a bug kit to one lucky winner!!
