Upon returning home from the grocery with a trunk load of groceries, I found a styrofoam bowl in my car. I HATE styrofoam anything. It never goes away! So, instead of tossing it, I thought I would use it to keep the boys occupied while I unloaded the groceries. I made a list of things for them to find in the backyard and put into the bowl. Once they found the objects, they got a sucker! It worked and I got all my groceries unload while they "played!" Win - Win!
PS - the bugs were a bit of a challenge (go figure) but we went to the front yard together and found a TON of roly polies!
