I asked the Witches which Bug is your favourite? They named quite a few. I said to to them how about creating 2 Bugs each!! This can be quite a hand full having 2 Witches creating something together. I try to take photos and then 1 of the Witches waiting and then decides to get on with it her way. I actually do not mind this at all, its their website and they can create the crafts how they want to!! Haha!! This is all about doing easy crafts with your children!!
The Witches decided to make a Ladybird, Bumble Bee, Spider and a Grasshopper!!
