Spiky the Woolly Bear

What is a woolly bear? It's a fuzzy caterpillar that you can probably spot in October!



We have a lot of these cute little critters around our house. My son has named them all Spiky. He really wants to keep them. We tried it for a few hours and the little guy ended up getting out of the make shift cage and squirming across my bed! Yuck!

So I promised my son I would at least take some pics of Spiky and put them on my blog. And the best thing happened. I just found an article on how to keep a woolly bear alive all winter and watch it spin a cocoon! My son will be thrilled! Here's the article if you're interested! In the Spring, Spiky will turn into an Isabella Tiger Moth. Do we need to change his name then?

Jen...here is a link of something fun that parents can do with their little inquisitive ones.

There is even so toe-tappin' music!
