They all went right for the basil seeds and Matisse may even have eaten handfuls of them (they are tasty! I tried!). Theo played for a little and was over it pretty fast. The big boys really enjoyed it though and enjoyed building insect houses.
Nature insects on cardboard
We went to collect some nature treasures and glued them to cardboard. We talked about the number of legs, antennas and wings, as well as the general anatomy of insects. We looked at the insects TOOB as a model.
Insects Mini World
This one was a fun project I made for the boys! I made a mini world in an Altoid box using felt, rocks, sticks, beads, Good Luck Mini TOOBs and a lot of glue! They really enjoyed it and it fared pretty well, however the animals disappeared pretty fast!
