Bodacious Bugs with Funshine Express! #BackToSchool

Today's Jitterbugs Funshine Express Theme was "Bodacious Bugs".  The kiddos made some cool bugs and painted the absorbent paper with food coloring and water.  The kit came with the bug shapes, pipettes, and yarn (in case you chose to hang them); all we had to do was add the coloring.  My little guy loved it!  The girls went for the hatching butterflies which were so neat!  They were made from tissue paper, twist ties, bug bodies, and brown paper.  All we had to supply were markers to color their wings, scissors and tape.  What I like best about the Funshine Express kits is that they come with most everything you need and each project is so easy to follow.  Plus, each theme comes with a variety of extra ideas.  For example, there were "more fun and game" ideas like caterpillar crawlers, butterfly toss, photos, sipping straw races, and a silly song about caterpillars.

After they went through many color changes and experiments, they were ready to fly to the window!
