6 Kids Christmas Ideas For The Bug Enthusiast

Christmas is only a few days away and if your kids are hard to shop for you may still be putting the finishing touches on your shopping list. If your kid is a bug enthusiast, we have come up with a few gift ideas that will be sure to excite them come Christmas morning.

Kids Christmas Ideas For The Bug Enthusiast


  1. Butterfly Garden – A butterfly garden is a great gift that allows your kids to experience the transformation where caterpillars eventually become beautiful butterflies. Your kids will no doubt be mesmerized by this unique transformation.

  2. Ant Farm – Purchase an ant farm and watch your kids become transfixed as their ant colony grows right before their eyes. Your kids will have a new appreciation for the hardest working bugs on the planet.

  3. Plant Flowers – Flowers can be a natural way to prevent bugs depending on the type of plant that you choose. Some plants that are great for keeping bugs such as mosquitoes away include catnip, geraniums, citronella and rosemary. Your kids will enjoy watching their plants grow and you will be keeping bugs away at the same time!

  4. Go Watch Animals – Winter can be a great time for you and your kids to get outside and watch some of the wild animals that make their home in your neighborhood. With the leaves down and the trees bare you will have no trouble spotting animals such as deer and other animals who are looking for food during the Winter.

  5. Search for Bugs – Do some Internet research to find common bugs in your area and have your kids go on a scavenger hunt for bugs. You can maybe even award your kids prizes based on the biggest or scariest bug that they can find.

  6. Enjoy the Stars – While not necessarily a bug idea, your kids will love to spend some time outside looking at the stars. Have your kids do some research on the different constellations and see if they can spot them in the clear sky at night.

What Our Customers Say

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
