Ever since the cold went away this spring we have been finding toads in our yard. It is about one per week. The big kids love it. They play with them in a bucket (or backpack) for the day and then we let it go. We bought a toad house once but that didn't work. Possibly because the kids use it for a toy themselves, therefore the toads never have a chance to use it. It is so much fun watching and hearing their excitement everytime they find a new one. I think I may need to consider what we can do to encourage more at our house.
