Insect Fair

Today we went to an Insect Fair at our library. Jack got to hold a millipede...

...and a walking stick.

He made a cool bug hat with antennae.

He also got a caterpillar painted on his cheek.

For some reason, this fake worm seemed to put him in some kind of trance. He kept putting it on his arm and petting it and he wanted to take it home with us.

The highlight of the event, though, was eating a bug. At first, as you can see above, he was grossed out at the thought. Then he found out that to get the prize (a little plastic bug), he would have to do all of the things on the Fear Factor card.

Apparently he really wanted that plastic bug, because he popped the mealworm (it was fried) right in! He said it tasted like a french fry!

First of all, let me tell you how jealous I am of your library! Ours isn't nearly as cool!!

Second, Jack needs to get over here and tell my 10 yo son what it's like to be a man. My son HATES bugs. Won't go near 'em. Science next year won't be fun at all, since we are studying birds and bugs!
