With the return of cold weather this week, sugar ants found their way into the preschool room. I cleaned everything thoroughly and then I put down a few ant traps to stem the tide. When the kids arrived I told them about the ants and asked them not to touch the traps. Their initial reaction was "yuck bugs" and fear about being bitten.
But I pulled out the magnifying glasses from the cupboard and suddenly it was "ooooh it has lots of legs" and "look where it's going".
