We saw bags of ladybugs at the hardware store and the childrens were intrigued. The Ladybugs were being sold as anti-pest devices (aphids, spider mite/somethings, etc).
Since we have a lot of wholey leaves and the kids were in the mood to release a bunch of ladybugs we picked up a couple bags and both kids got to distribute ladybugs around the front and back of the house.
Getting the ladybugs out of the bags was harder than you'd think. Once they figured out there was an opening, they were hip to climb to the outside of the bag but they seemed a bit nervous actually leaving the bag for their new leafy homes.
Later in the day we found a few ladybugs that had hitched rides in the girl's hair and on my flannel.
