Pill Bugs

Olivia and I made a Pill Bug "trap" last week and it worked remarkably well. 

Apparently, pill bugs love potatoes, so we hollowed out a potato, cut a small hole in one end and put the shell back together with a rubber band. We placed out by the wood pile and left it for a few days. Sure enough, when we opened it, there were 2 pill bugs and an earwig.
Olivia was rather reluctant to touch them at first.

After she saw me pick one up...

she willingly let it crawl all over her hands. It moved so quickly, it was hard to get a  picture of it. :)
