  1. These are awesome ideas! I’ve seen the flower one before – I don’t have kids but I want to try it just for me, is that bad?? Kind of LOLed when I noticed that the scavenger hunt required the kids to find a crab – none here in Indiana but it could easily be substituted for an earthworm or some other insect. I think my nephews would have a lot of fun with these projects when they get a bit older. Thanks for the share 🙂
