Buggy celebration

Creepy crawlers and critters -- a bug-themed party is an inexpensive (and good for the kid who loves gross stuff!).

How to plan it
-Shop for lots of bugs at a party store or a local dollar store. Hang (and hide) bugs all over the house for party guests to find.
-Make a Bug Fact Sheet and hand it out to kids. They’ll spend all afternoon searching for the bugs on the list. Added bonus? They’ll learn a little bit about each one, too.
-For snacks, think animal-themed. Gummy worms, strawberries with eyes (to look like ladybugs!), bananas with twist pretzels (to look like butterflies!), and ants on a log.
