Do you have Cicadas where you live? They are bugs that you know by their sounds at night. Well, they also leave their shells behind when they grow (check out wikipedia -there's a creepy time-lapse picture of a cicada emerging...) - if you know to look for the shells, they're everywhere.
My 8-year old son knows to look. He finds them all the time when he's out playing. He will wander in with them stuck on his head or try to stick it onto your back unsuspectingly. Well now he has a new trick - strategically placing them throughout the house....I've taken pictures of a few of them for your viewing enjoyment...

Ready for an unsuspecting email check:
A few days after I started finding them, he had to comment "hey mom, have you noticed that our house has a bug problem lately?" Boys are so funny......
