Day 7: Ham-BUG-ers with Helping Little Hands
Hi, I'm Polly from Helping Little Hands where I share all sorts of crafts and sewing projects as well as fun activities for kids and many of our favorite children's books. I'm excited to be part of the Summer Soiree! When Aimee asked me about it, I knew just what I wanted to do...something with BUGS! My kids love looking for bugs in the big field behind our house during the summer.
And what better way to explore them, than eating some of your own Ham-BUG-ers.
We also love reading a lot of picture books, so this activity was inspired by a book. Beetle McGrady Eats Bugs by Megan McDonald. I wasn't quite brave enough to try some of the dishes in the book, but Ham-BUG-ers was an easy sell with the kids.
We started making our own hamburger buns several months ago, and once you try it, you'll never want to go back! Making them into bugs while we're at it, is super simple and fun for the kids. I just use regular whole wheat bread dough. I make mine at home, but you could easily use regular white bread dough or buy the dough from the store.
