Interpret that as you deem appropriate: with utter delight at the quality bonding time now available for you and your children, or complete panic at filling all the time with creative, fun activities that will prevent any and all sibling arguments! Rest easy, worried moms – help is here! CRAFTS!

Springtails

Certain species of springtails are referred to as “snow fleas” when found in winter, but they are not fleas at all. Springtails are found year round, but because of a special protein that acts like anti-freeze, this type of springtail is able to survive in cold winter temperatures. Springtails don’t have wings, instead they get around by jumping, using a unique catapult system. Their jumping is especially noticeable in winter when they are contrasted against white snow.
