Since I was uploading pictures from my camera for the living room post last week, I thought I’d share a few more from CJ’s 7th birthday party last May, which had a bug theme.
It was less flashy than some of my previous parties because I had a budget (the horror, I know), but I did put together a cute little bug catcher for the kids to take home. If it’s still hot where you live, this would be an easy craft for a lazy afternoon.
Jelly jars (any size)
Remove the lid insert from the canning jars. Trace outline onto plastic canvas. Repeat for as many bug catchers you’d like to make; cut out. Place the plastic canvas circles into the jar lid where the original insert used to be. Screw onto jar to secure.
For CJ’s party, we stuffed our jars with candy, bug finger puppets, and magnifying glasses. Of course you don’t need to stuff them with anything—just give them to the kiddos and let the bug-catching begin!
