I made the boys their own bug catcher nets today out of bubble wands and cheesecloth. This is a very quick project and made for a nice outdoor activity.
I happen to have these smaller size bubble wands, but you could also use the larger size ones. I cut the cheese cloth in a large circle and glued the edges around the wand with my glue gun.
The trick to using the glue gun for this project is to first fold the cheesecloth over the edge of the bubble wand and then squirt the glue on top. Let it dry to the point where the glue becomes tacky and you can use your fingers to press it down.
