Every year cicadas hatch and leave behind a shell. Every year our boys like to pick them from the trees in our Indiana town and collect them!
These dried husks are carefully placed in our boys’ bug house. Each year they see if they can fill it up–before dumping it out and starting all over again the next year. Yes, this thing sits in our house all year.
That left me thinking…how about a cicada counting contest? In addition to bragging rights to this new annual contest that really creeps my husband out, whomever can guess the answer correctly or is closest to the answer without going over, can have their choice of ONE of the items below.
In the event of a tie, I will assign each person a number and then use Random.org to select a winner.
Cicada Counting Contest Prizes
The winner can choose from ONE of the following items:
- One $5 Movie Madness from DeMotte, Indiana Gift Card ($5 value)
- One Richmond Historic Auto Tour Places to Go, Sites to See of Historic Sites in Richmond and Wayne County CD ($5 value)
- One Remington, Indiana Sesquicentennial Cookbook ($10 value)
