Bug Catchers from WhiMSy Love

The girls and I whipped up these cute little bug catcher necklaces today after school. You can check out the tutorial by WhiMSy love to make one of your own too! CJ came home with a clover clutched tight in her hands and kept asking me to hold it for her. So we found a quick and easy solution to hold on to the tiny little treasures that she would find outside. We didn't have any of the little plastic cases from the candy machines but used the clear snap lid containers from Dollarama. They come in two sizes ~ the larger size for CJ (6 in a pkg) and the smaller ones for CD (8 in a pkg). We'll post pictures of ours after we spend the day outside tomorrow. I worry about all the lady bugs that CD will try to capture and stuff inside... maybe she can be pursuaded to find pebbles!!

Thank you for the great idea. I will be making these will my class for sure. Perhaps I'll have CJ come in to be a special helper that day to guide my class and myself along. Loved the Cupcake today. It couldn't have arrived on a more "SWEETS REQUIRED and NEEDED" day.
