I think I will just cut a long body out if I can't find an egg carton.

Math/Life Skills/Science- Insect Sort

Place plastic bugs in a bin along with random other shaped toys. Like don't get bugs and little people animals.  In my bug jar there are insects (3 body parts) and then spiders and caterpillar.  The three part insects would be insects and the spiders and caterpillars are not insects.

I left a link for a printable page to sort insects and not insect, but I might just write one :)

Theme- Ladybug Clothes Pins*

There is a little bit of prep required for this activity.

I think I will just glue small red pom-poms on small clothes pins.
Maybe, I will just use red clothes pins lol the more I think about it, I will probably just draw them on a red clip!
