The Boxelder Bugs Are Back!


On Sunday, I got to hang out with my teenage son. My husband took my daughter back to college after lunch so it was just the two of us for the rest of the day. We made a killer carrot cake, watched basketball, and he checked out my blog. I told him about my idea to create a piece that conveyed information about boxelder bugs through a conversation between the two bugs. He was instrumental in posing the bugs and re-positioning them when they ran away.

  1. I love this! It really shows your comedic side and has me thinking about what other spring time annoyances could have conversations. A great idea for the classroom! :)

  2. I bet your son will never forget your afternoon together. This has to be one of the most unusual pieces I have seen on TWT. Congratulations on your creativity.

  5. Box Elder bugs are the bane of my Dad's existence. He even bought a special bug-sucker-upper tube-like vacuum that sucks them up wherever he sees them. Much more fun to set them up in a tableau!

  6. I love those comics you created with the bugs. Did you use a certain program/application to do that?? I know that would be so fun to try with my students.

  7. Well, it must be spring! This is so clever & fun that your son helped too. I wonder if people who write so lovingly about spring ever write about the welcoming of insects?

  8. What a great way to show that writing can be unique and fun. I think I will borrow your idea for a future project with students.

  12. I love this! You couldn't have paid me to be the one repositioning the bugs, however!
