Venus Fly Traps

Ever since we watched “Life” on TV this spring, we have been fascinated by the Venus fly trap. An insect-eating plant. How cool is that? So when I saw this craft idea, I knew we had to do it.

We painted the cardboard circle green on both sides.

And then we added green triangle “teeth.”

When we bent the circle in half, it looked a lot like the Venus fly trap.

I made a couple of black “flies” for the fly trap to eat, but mostly the boys just chased each other around the house yelling, “snap! snap! snap!”

I didn’t get a photo of that. I was probably yelling, “don’t snap your brother!” or something else equally useless.
