    We used to put bugs in big jars with holes in them at my grandparents in the summer.

    I think it would be best to only observe the bug for a few.minutes instead of the whole day. Keeping it prisoner for that long is cruel.

    LM is majorly into bugs. He likes to look at them with a magnifying glass. Also, he has no fear, so I have to watch. He wants to hold them all, even spiders.
