when everyone had to hold the bugs VERY gently

We all loved it! Master R was particularly delighted when one of the insects climbed up his face.

The food in Grub Kitchen is truly delicious. There are non-bug options too.

If you are looking for an unusual Christmas gift you can order some Cricket Cookies and other goodies from Bug Farm Foods.

You can keep up to date with what they are up to on their Facebook Page.

  2. I’ll try almost anything once but, after my inability to keep locusts down (a charity event) due to an extremely irritating gag reflex, I’m not sure the bugs would have fared any better with my pathetic bodily responses! What a fantastic experience for young children, though.

    I think it is great to get kids up close and personnel with bugs of all kinds.

  5. I went to a 4-H insect workshop once, lots of snacks there too! You definitely captured gentle, though I am happy watching from afar!

  7. I admire the children, they are made of much sterner stuff than I, who would probably be screaming my head off! 🙂

  9. Rather you than me! I don’t mind spiders but not to keen on those bugs and I have never fancied eating them either.

    • Most of them don’t really taste of anything, just a bit crunchy. It was a novel way to celebrate a 5 year olds’s birthday – I was pleasantly surprised to see how adventurous the children were, trying everything with interest.

  10. I don’t think I will be joining you for lunch. Glad no critters were harmed in the session, good gentle children
