If your child is a budding entomologist, he or she will find these insect and butterfly terrariums utterly fascinating. Each mini kit comes with all the materials needed to make a natural eco-system with dried moss, floral elements and preserved insect or butterfly. These can be assembled easily by hand as a fun craft and examined along with the included educational as a nature lesson.

And if you’re worried about how the fate of the preserved insects came to be, don’t fret. These bugs and butterflies are sourced from farms preserving natural habitats that collect the bugs only once they’ve completed their life cycle.

Available to purchase as sets or individual terrariums on The Amateur Naturalist’s Etsy shop ($12).
