Earwigs are long flat insects with six legs and at the end of their abdomen they have a set of forceps that look like pincers. They use these for defense. Earwigs don't live up to their name and crawl into people's ears! We have lots more fun earwig facts, puzzles, word searches and colourings in our earwig minibeast section.
Are you doing a project on minibeasts? This earwig tracing page is great for younger children wanting to improve pen control.
How many earwigs can you count on our earwig counting puzzle worksheet?
