Then we painted egg carton bugs! Quinn loved mixing the paint colors!
After the mess, it was bath time. I was so excited to share with Quinn my love for these things... Did anyone else love these as a kid?...He threw each of them in the bath and then got in to watch them magically turn into bugs!
He was so excited to see what each one would become...After bath, he put on his "Super Fly" T and we read some books. My favorites were In the Garden (I had it on tape from my teaching days and it is SO cute!)...
And, of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar! I collected all of the plastic food that Q had that matched the book and he acted it out with his beloved Clarance! He had so much fun feeding the caterpillar as I read the story... He even had to try a few of them for himself...and, once it was safe, gave it to the caterpillar too!
This was his favorite page...it was always my favorite page too! ... I loved the pickle and the sucker!
After that, we loaded up the car to go on a little field trip to find bugs with Daddy at the field behind the church. We watched "A Bugs Life" on the way and Q held on tight to his bug house. When we got there, we looked and looked for bugs. Daddy was a big help! He caught all 3 of the bugs that we found...even though Q and I were trying really hard too!
Lunch was fun...a butterfly sandwich...
He did such a great job at both of these bug games...the bug sticker "I Spy" game
...and making his name into a caterpillar!
When Daddy got home from work, Quinn was excited to show off all of his BUG things from the day!
Quinn's dinner included the classic "Ants on a Log" and a fun Spider cookie! They were both a hit!!!
As we were driving to the church, Q looked at me and said, "Bug Day is fun!" I'm so glad he enjoys our fun days as much as I do!
