Man, did we have fun at McDonald Garden Center in Virginia Beach!! We got to decorate our own pots and plant Venus Flytraps!!!! They EAT BUGS!!! How COOL!
It was insanely educational and FUN!!
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!!
We are SOOOOOO very excited for Jacob as he is going to be in the paper this SUNDAY. Yes, the PILOT was there covering the story. Jacob is a STAR 😉 GO AUTISM!!!!!!!!!
Spectrum Parents, here are all the photos from the video: They are yours to do with as you like – print, share, and love!!!!
