But things got better. The girls have been playing Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad since Friday when we checked the book out of the library. Clare discovered the Ladybug Girl books at school this Spring and we have enjoyed the discovery so much. After all, Ladybug Girl "can do anything." Since she discovered the books, Clare gets to be Ladybug Girl and Meg plays the role of Kiki the Butterfly Girl. I decided to channel that bug squad energy into a nature walk at Long Branch Nature Center.
I found some great nature walk guide sheets on Pinterest (you can see some of the other nature checklists I pinned and plan to use). Clare, in particular, enjoyed checking off things she found on the nature walk (and as you can see, she was still dressed as Ladybug Girl on the walk).
