My grandson loves looking at and learning about bugs. The last time we were together I told him I would make him a bug cage. I had not remembered until he came for Easter. He reminded me that the next time I saw him I would have a bug cage. Part of Saturday we made this bug cage. I used some scrap wood I had. Got some aluminum screen from the hardware store. This was scrap they just gave me. I stapled the screen to some plywood. I covered the staples with small pieced of wood. Made a circular door and fixed a square piece of thin plywood that hinges on a screw. Then I took an old scrap strap that I took off the old high chair we found on our trip south and used it for the handle. I forgot to take a picture so I had my daughter send me one after they returned home. I noticed my grandson has written on it already. He helped me do the hammering of the nails. Not bad for a five year old.
