So I found him this you tube video, which inspired cricket habitat building. He's got a whack of female crickets and he's hoping that he can get them to lay eggs and have babies without wanting to each other...cause crickets will eat anything they can. He's feeding them cat food and leftovers. So we'll see how it goes. I have told him that crickets keeping me awake would NOT be a good thing.... so we will have to seriously see how it goes.
I'd show you what he built, but my computer sometimes has issues downloading my pictures. Why... haven't the foggiest, but for now no pics.
But for now.. child led learning about crickets is good. :)
