Who knew that I would be glad to see our Easter invaded by bugs. HEXBUG nano that is. Thanks to MomSelect & Mommy Parties I was able to introduce my family to Hexbug Nano. We had 11 limited edition Hexbug Nano Easter Eggs (each egg contained 1 Hexbug Nano complete with its own rabbit ears) and a Hexbug Spiral Starter set.What is a Hexbug Nano you ask? The Hexbug Nano is a micro robotic creature that acts like a real bug. It looks like the end of a toothbrush and it vibrates. Once turned on the vibrations of the Hexbug make the rubber legs move the Hexbug as if it were crawling around like a real bug. You add your Hexbug Nano to a home aka a habitat and you will have tons of fun for your kids.
I gave each child a Hexbug Easter egg of their own. They came with little pink bunny ears but the ears didn't have a fighting chance of hanging around once my 3 year old figured out that they came off. Luckily we had a few Hexbug eggs left over because we had two Hexbug Nanos batteries die during the fun. After the kids played with the Hexbug nanos we had the do an egg hunt. All the eggs were regular sized eggs but 1. The over sized egg that we hid had a Hexbug Nano inside. The child that found the Hexbug won the Hexbug Spiral starter set to take home with them. All the kids (and some adults) had a blast. We had HEXBUGs on our cars, on the tables, on people and who knows where else they ended up.
To add to the fun of having a Hexbug Nano party you could have fun bug treats. No, not real bugs. Maybe some-
6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 liters ginger ale
1 small container green sherbet
1 cup raisins
In a large punch bowl, combine the lemonade, ginger ale, mixing until the lemonade is completely dissolved. When ready to serve, add scoops of the green sherbet to the bowl to chill, placing raisins on to to look like little bugs.
And Im sure the kids will love to have some dirt cups.
3.9 oz JELL-O chocolate instant pudding
1 cup cold milk
8 oz Cool Whip topping, thawed
15 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
1 package gummy worms
Mix puding and milk in a large bowl, let it set for 5 minutes. Stir in the Cool Whip and ½ the Oreo cookie crumbs. Spoon mixture into cups and refrigerate for 1 hour. Before serving, top off each cup with the rest of the cookie crumbs and gummy worms.
You can purchase the Hexbug Nano species and habitats on Amazon or check your local toy retailers.
