Invite some creepy crawlers to your child's next birthday, and make the indoors feel just as adventurous as the outdoors.
Tips: Lined specimen boxes are available at hobby stores.
- Specimen box
- Wrapping paper
- Rubber cement
- Utility knife
- Rubber insects and pens
To cover the box: Remove glass; set aside. Lay a piece of wrapping paper (a few inches bigger than the box on all sides) right side down; coat the top of the box lid with rubber cement; place it face down on paper.
Cut away the center of the paper by running a utility knife along the opening. Wrap the paper over the sides of the lid, affixing with rubber cement; cut away extra.
Replace glass. Affix labels with names and fill the boxes with rubber insects and pens.
