Hunting for bugs in the garden with Barny

I first encountered the new Barny snacks at Lollibop. We had a lot of fun in the Barny tent hunting for digital bugs on their interactive wall. Thanks to BritMums and Barny, last week we received a Barny Discovery Kit so that we could go on an adventure of our own and find some real bugs.

I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to picking up bugs, but fortunately my Dad was visiting for a few days and he was very happy to take Harry on an adventure out in the garden looking for insects. In the kit we had a small plastic pot and a larger mesh container for observing insects and bugs. The easiest ones to find were woodlice, plenty of those under my poor, neglected pots!

Our swing has become a home for spiders, and my Dad showed Harry how if you look carefully at a spider's web you can usually find the spider in there somewhere. Harry also enjoyed having a good look at the web itself.

They had a lot of fun on their little adventure in the garden, and I know that I'm going to have to go out bug hunting myself before long!

I received a Barny Discovery Kit and some Barny snacks to take part in this challenge.
