Maggots in Jakarta

I love science...it was my best subject at school (I was Mrs Broughs FAVOURITE).
GJ and I encourage the kids interest in all things...but whoa......today...MAGGOTS!
Last year Santa was nice enough to bring a microscope kit for Georgia.
We have had heaps of fun examining the difference between grains of rice, sugar crystals, coffee beans, hairs etc...
Today the stakes were upped.
The kids found a fly with maggots...............and guess what.....they wanted to look.

This was some of the conversation "flying" around our house today:

  • I don't do maggots
  • I birthed your children, you do maggots
  • maggots are baby flies, you do it
and from the kids.....
  • Where have the maggots gone......
We survived, just. All children are now in a dettol bath.

Another learning experience chalked up. The kids had fun.....The parents gagged alot !


PS I didn't do maggots!!!!!! I let GJ have all the fun!
