Bugs!! We love bugs around here. Originally the plan was to do an insect box with soil. But with managing a toddler and a new baby on my own for the first time I didn't want to have to sweep. So I used black beans for easier clean up.
Jman seemed to really like the bugs. I heard "what's that?" A hundred times. But we're used to that around here. He wouldn't play by himself which seems to be the new norm around here.
