Backyard Bug Habitat

USING THE BUG HABITAT  (Typed by my mom with my sister telling her what to type. Rachie was too tired to type right now.  *mom's laughing*)
 
Includes:  1 Tweezers, 1 Magnifying Glass, 1 Transfer Cap
 
Before we added insects to the  habitat we had to add a little bit of dirt to the bottom part on the left.  When we want to open the habitat we have to hold the front of the bottom part and tilt the clear dome backwards.  You have to snap the dome back onto the  bottom.  We also put water in our habitat. The hatch opens at the top of the  dome. You can use an eyedropper to add water to the part right behind the tall tree stump to make a waterfall!
 
After we put the bugs safely into the habitat, we can watch them all we want. We can move the magnifier to see the bugs better.
 
BUG VACUUM
 
The bug vacuum is a hand held thingy that helps you catch bugs. All we have to do is find a bug that we want to put in our Bug Habitat, put the vacuum over the bug and squeeze the trigger.  The vacuum sucks the bug into a special chamber called "the capture capsule" until its ready to be put into its new home, the Bug Habitat!
 
CARING FOR THE BUG HABITAT
 
We use the tweezers to take out any dead or unwanted bugs through the hatch, or we take it outside in the backyard and open the dome.  When it's time to clean it we have to take the paper chart off the back and clean it with soapy water.
 
THANKS DADDY!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!
