The Entomology Kit
The Den Kit Company was founded with a mission to inspire wonder and intrigue in the next generation through creative, fun and unprescribed outdoor play. Based on Forest School ideas, their products encourage children to explore their outdoor environment, from small balconies to the great British countryside.
The Den Kit Company's products contain no single use plastic, require no batteries and the instructions are simple and straightforward.
This activity kit introduces children to the world of entomology, allowing them to study insects up close and learn about them with the Entomologist's Guide and beautifully illustrated identification cards included in the kit.
