Bugs day 2 &3

Day 2 of Bugs went well.

We made bug stained glass (using glitter glue and puffy paint)  This was supposed to peel off the wax paper and stick to a window.  It didn't, but the kids had fun.

 We then listed questions we had about bugs and went to the library for research (and to turn in their summer reading logs).  They were much more interested in their prizes for the summer reading program then the information they learned about bugs.

We came home to Bug sandwiches - thank heavens for lady bug and butterfly cookie cutters!

Quiet time was at the neighbor's house.  They had fun using the magnifying glasses to locate bugs and the parts of a bee.  I lost energy and finished the day bug free and at a church activity.

Day 3 of Bugs:
  We were supposed to watch Bugs Life, through the summer movie program at the local movie theater.  However, there were too many people and there were no seats where we could sit together.  The manager comped us 4 tickets for another movie and we got to see Madagascar 3.  Lucky us!  We did have to wait an hour which has thrown off our schedule but it was well worth it.
  This afternoon we will be making our own Insect feeding station.  We hope to have a variety of bugs to look at tomorrow.  And we'll be making our own play-doh bugs (I'm sure bugs will turn into cars, but it's worth a try.)
We'll be having Boo Bugs for dinner ( ).  Possibly with Wormy  cheese dip ( 
We have daddy home with us early today so we'll possibly be playing BedBugs after dinner. I love the DI and the Salvation Army! They have helped me gather my supplies for this week.  My movies, my games, and some of my craft supplies all came from there.
