Examining Insects and Needle Felting–August 4, 2011
32 children came to work in the garden, look for insects and help Janice Redman complete the 4-H Banner with needle felting. We were searching for beneficial bugs and found some spiders, inchworms, bees and butterflies. Some were placed in containers for a closer examination. Kids who hadn’t had a chance to draw insects were encouraged to draw one today and others harvested more tomatoes, cucumbers and basil to taste.
