Chasing Fireflies: A Summer Evening Of Fun

Summer: Chasing fireflies on a summer evening is one of kids favorite activities. At dusk, you can see these tiny creatures blinking their lights like little beacons in the night time sky. It doesn’t take much to catch them just a couple of hands and quick feet. Find an old canning jar, punch some nail holes in the top, line the bottom with grass and you have not made the perfect home for these unique bugs. After spending some time doingthis fun family activity the “prize” is well worth the effort. My children like to keep them in their room as little nightlights to ward away dark shadows. It’s all part of the fun and the memories that you will make are worth the effort.
