Ever try catching a fly? Well here’s a Handprint Fly Craft created by the FreeKidsCrafts Team that will hang around and make you smile. Kids love pointing out projects they have made using their hands.
True flies serve many roles in the food chain as both predators and prey. Flies serve as important food sources for many birds, fish, mammals and other insects. Source: Sciencing – The Importance of Flies
