Bugs Fandex (Courtesy Workman Publishing) Ahhh, spring! Flowers, showers and bugs buzzing everywhere. Remember catching creepy crawlies in a bottle so you could take a closer look? Well, this week we’re giving away the tools your kid needs to wile away a lazy afternoon just like that: Workman Publishing’s Bug Book & Bug Bottle – with ventilated lid so insects stay safe till junior returns them to the garden, unharmed – and a cool Bugs Fandex. Very fun. And all you have to do win this is click “comments” and tell us, what’s your kids’ favorite way to laze away a summer afternoon? We’ll draw a winner’s name next Monday. (This contest is now closed – congrats, Tim! Click here for details on the next contest.)

    Hello! In the really hot and humid days of summer here in the Midwest, running through the cold water of a sprinkler is fun, a water balloon fight (we pick up all
    of the balloon pieces) and swimming in a their Aunt’s
    swimming pool are my children’s activities.
    My 91 year old day still plants a vegetable garden
    and would enjoy his grandsons bring beneficial bugs
    to his garden
    Many thanks!
