Bachlerlebnis mit Kindergarten!!

I got this note from my son's kindergarten asking to get tools for 'Bacherlebnis'. Seems like they are taking them to an insect-exploring adventure. The tools needed are
Planktonnetz or kitchen sieve
Pinzette oder Pinsel (Thongs or tweezers)
Becherlupe ( Mug magnifying glass)
Tried Coop City, Migros and Toys R Us. But in vain.
I've got a normal magnifying glass and kitchen seive. But the latter has a metal mesh. Clearly, thats not a substitute for the Plankton net.
I can buy them online, but not much time left. I would appreciate if you could come up with some info about where to get them as a set or seperately. Please take a look at the contents of the set bachlerlebnis-mit-kindergarten-19208.jpg If nothing works out, I should be able to get a big nylon kitchen sieve, Again i need your help in getting one.
P.S: Sorry about the typo in the Heading..its..'Bacherlebnis'

Sounds like a fun day out!!

For the tweezers try your local chemist and perhaps your local garden center might have the net maybe in the pond section???

Re: Bachlerlebnis mit Kindergarten!!

What about a pet shop? They should sell stuff like that for people with an aquarium, shouldn't they?

Tweezers: get at Migros. Under the hair/nail care. Women use tweezers to tweeze their eyebrows. Very easy to find.

The kitchen sieve/net thing. Migros. Go to kitchen supply section. Make a net out of a hoop of wire or metal coat-hanger and attach a cheese-cloth. Works beautifully.

Magnifying glass: a paper shop or stamp collecting shop.

Re: Bachlerlebnis mit Kindergarten!!

don't know how much time oyu got left to get the things yur child needs but i have found this site a source of really good stuff for quality kids toys! We got 16 years ago a pair of flied glasses for my then eldestfrom them,they have survived many a fall on hard floor and are still used today!

http://www.kidoh.ch/3er-set-becherlu....html?b=995809

Also Weltbild shops ( as well as the online store) often carry such items as the looking glass or 'little explorer' sets of different kinds

Tweezers of different sizes can be bought most easily in a pharmacy,the good thing is you will be able to use it after the field trip in your household

As for the net you will be able to purchase a sieve with plastic meshing in any household store or as a few mentioned in a aquarium store

http://tel.search.ch/result.html?was...ivat=1&firma=1

this link will guides you to the directory with 20 aquarium shops to choose from in Zurich

Hope this helps and I wish your child a wonderful field trip!!
