Nature Bugs on the Nature Table

We had a great time making nature bugs last year(check them out here) and have been waiting for it to get dry enough to try them out this year.
Finally we had a dry day and went out to collect our materials in the woods, watching out for bears the whole time.(we did see some bear poo!)

Once we got home we got out the glue and began sticking.  Here L is making a dragonfly.  She mostly enjoyed covering everything with glue but nothing much stuck.  You need to be really patient with these guys.

Once they were dry they all flew over to our nature table and made themselves at home along with the wonderful bear puzzle and little glass snail.
This is also great practice for L to look and not touch as they are very "delicate" aka they will totally disintegrate if she does!
