Millipede Habitat

We've been spending more time in our yard this past couple weeks. It's not natural for me to head outdoors, but I've been really trying to do it for the kids sake. Most days, especially when I'm tired or it's hot, I bring a folding chair out and sit in that while the kids run around (the heat and humidity doesn't bother them so much, and we go out while it's still shady!)

One of the things that has begun taking Tornado's attention and time is playing with the millipedes in our yard. We have had plenty in the house too... and he is my faithful "millipede remover" as I ask him calmly to "take it outside so that it can go home." When we're outside though, he just plays and plays with them. Holding them, unwinding them when they curl up. Sharing them with his sister. And collecting them in his yellow truck.

Today he made a bit of a habitat for a lucky group of millipedes he found crawling around in the grass. For those of you who picture millipedes as being 5 inches long and very troubling to be playing with... these are what we are talking about. Little one inch guys with lots of legs. Perfectly harmless... unless they're touching me. So far so good on that one!
