Summer’s So Close We’re Talking Lightning Bugs!

DailySouthSummerCatch Fireflies JarThis summer we’re vowing to spend more time enjoying simple Southern pleasures. One way we plan to make good on that promise is with an old-fashioned firefly roundup. Can you think of a more spellbinding and carefree activity from your childhood? I know I can’t.
To encourage this “Southern sport” (yep, I’m going to go ahead and deem it one) at your outdoor summer get-togethers set up a “Catch Fireflies” station. All you need are mason jars with a damp paper towel placed in side (to prevent lighting bugs from drying out) and topped with a piece of breathable fabric (so you won’t smother the sparkling lovelies). For a stylish finish download and adhere our cute firefly labels at southernliving.com/fireflies. It’s the perfect way to capture the moment!

    I consider lightning bug catching as a sport! I must order some jars to be prepared. Thanks for the reminder!
