Yesterday we watched Sid the Science Kid on PBS and it inspired me to go outside (since it was finally sunny!) and find some bugs for OM to check out. The show was about magnification so I located a couple of magnifying glasses too and when Woody got home we overturned some bricks in the backyard and saw lots of rolly poley's, worms, and various other bugs. Both Owen & Maya held the rolly poley's and I'm afraid Maya have squished a couple a bit too hard:(
Another idea I like from the show (I don't really like the show very much overall but yesterday's was good) is having a question box. When Sid (the science kid) asks his parents a question they write it down and put it in a box. I think that would be fun to look at at some point down the road.
