At my daughter's daycare, each parent is responsible from the activities once or twice a month. Last time it was my turn, I took some modeling clay (the type that air dries) and some other bits and pieces for the little ones to make their own bugs. I had some leftovers and played myself later at home. Here is my friend Porc made from modeling clay, eyelets and toothpicks. I like him so much that he is even on Small Square Design home page for a while.
