This week we hosted a lady bug release with several homeschool friends at a local park. This is our second year doing this and something the kids really enjoy! Holly made a comment that usually she is out looking for various critters to catch and observe, but this time she is setting them free. True!!!
We got a couple containers of lady bugs to release. The kids all shared the knowledge they had on these little beetles, we discussed a nice way to release them and then the kids got to work. We spread them at a local park (with permission). After releasing the ladybugs we spent a beautiful afternoon enjoying the park with our friends. A walk around the pond, a splash in the creek and then a lot of time playing. The day was wonderful!!!
