This is my first Instructable so bear with me. I am sorry that some of the pictures are a little blurry.
Every little kid loves to catch lightning bugs in the summer, or butterflies, or even ladybugs. So why not make this cute bug house for your little ones to keep their cute creatures in while they are hunting. It may not turn out perfect. I know mine didn't. But if your kids are anything like mine they will have it destroyed or lost in less than a week. But at least they will enjoy it for a little while.

Materials:
Duct Tape (I used gray, red, purple, and blue)
Paper (I used regular copy paper but recycled paper is fine because the paper does not show.)
Screen scraps or Plastic Canvas (I used plastic canvas)
Rubber band
Wire hanger or other stiff wire
Scissors
Pliers
Pen for marking paper tubes
Packing or Scotch tape (optional)

Note: To make paper tubes:
Lay paper diagonally. Starting with the bottom corner, tightly roll paper until it makes a thin tube. Tape in several places along the tube to keep it from unrolling. I used packing tape for this but duct tape will work fine.
