Ants Working Together

A group of hard-working ants lose their tools while working on a new storage shed. They reach out to their other bug friends for help. The spiders, wasps, butterflies, and ladybugs all join in to try and help them. Some bugs are more helpful than others. Will the ants find their tools in time?
