Valentines Day Science

While wandering through the craft store a couple weeks ago I happened upon a lot of Valentine's Day merchandise with the term "love bug." Although it was all pretty cheesy and very girly, it inspired this years non-candy version for Owen's 1st grade class. Owen is all boy so the idea of handing out plastic bugs to his classmates thrilled him.
