For a classic piece listen to Flight of the Bumble Bee by Rimsky Korsakov and have your little ones buzz around the room!


A few children’s songs come to mind with regards to insects and creepy crawlies:

My kids have always been fascinated with insects of all kinds. If you have an inquisitive child who likes to explore nature up close or if you have a child who is interested in science, then this Theme Day based on creepy crawlies is a great way to learn more about the world of insects and other small creatures.   It would be a nice Spring or Summer time Theme Day as well since that is when insects are most visible.
