Knitting Beetles

Get as many large beetles as you can find and attach small threads of wool to each of their backs. Place these Beetles into the knitting bucket with a lid and allow them to twist and dart about - shaking the container every hour or so to promote activity.

When the bugs have died, you will find a most interesting piece of clothing inside the bucket. Depending on their movements, they may have made you something resembling a mitten, or perhaps a unique cold weather poncho that you can slip over your head and wear to a party. Leave the bugs on the ends of the threads to create an eye catching ornamental effect that undulates in the breeze.

       What if the bugs weren't really dead, just resting? Bring a can of RAID with you to the party, just in case.   

       Or use caterpillers instead of beetles. Your "poncho" will have a fringe of cocoons. When your poncho suddenly lifts into the sky, you know the butterflies have hatched.
