I had to share with you a story having to do with these art bags that happened just this week. My husband trains volunteers to teach children to read as part of his job. My girls often take turns going to help him, as he needs a “model” student during the training. My youngest was so excited that she was finally old enough to help daddy with training this last week. I made sure she took a snack and her art bag, to keep her busy while dad did the part of the training that didn’t involve her. Her snack was a granola bar and a banana.
About 4-5 days after her “turn” we were cleaning up the house. I picked up the art bags to dust underneath and when I picked up my lil’ ones bag, I was attacked. By FRUIT FLIES! So many, many disgusting little fruit flies. Ugh. The banana peel from her snack was sitting in the bottom of the bag getting nice and black. It was covered in them! I ran the bag outside, but not before many, many fruit flies made their way throughout the house. We have been battling them ever since. We have about won the battle with the nifty little “vinegar in a jar with holes poked through the top” trick. Hmm, I think that little trick may need a post of its own…anyone have any other great tips for getting rid of fruit flies?
