Bug Box

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.
