Nurture a budding naturist with a creepy crawly themed party. Many of us would cringe at the thought of a bug party, but some are fascinated with these weird and wonderful creatures.
What sort of bugs should you look out for at a creepy crawly party? The list is endless; bees, ladybeetles, dragonflies, ants, butterflies, stick insects, flies, praying mantis, worms, stinkbugs, spiders, cockroaches, elephant beetles, crickets, grasshoppers, cicadas, and many more!

Creepy Crawly Party Ideas
Food – Make sandwiches and use the Lunch Punch from Cool Things to turn them into butterflies. Make butterfly cupcakes. Put fake plastic flies in the water or cordial.
Activities – If the party is being held outdoors ask the children to identify as many bugs as they can. Use the MegaView TV Microscope from Cool Things to look at them up-close.
If looking at real insects is too horrifying, host a creepy crawly themed craft afternoon. Ask guests to draw or paint their own insect. Encourage creativity by asking them to invent a new species. See instructions on butterfly painting at 0to5.
