Venus Flytraps!!!!!  Get ready, get set, go get some BUGS!

We had about 10 kids on the Autism Spectrum excited to dig in.  Jacob was over the top interested, though 🙂  Once we were done decorating, planting, and of course tentatively touching the little hairs on the Venus Flytraps, Jacob went and found some bugs.  He actually fed other kid’s plants as well as his own.  We all watched the traps close.  Then, Jacob and Connor went to get more bugs!!  Oh, how we all loved it!!
