Sunday 8 September 2019


both the eldest girls always loved bugs when they were little . Kadiann even ate a snail once! I know , I know!, but they were never scared of creepy crawlers at all.

Over the last few months Nila has been frightened by every black little dot she sees!. Honestly , she points at every thing and says it’s a spider , I don’t know if it’s a faze she is going through but it really does upset her .

It’s been a lovely day today and I thought it would be nice to get out in the garden- I am a little house bound due to surgery, but we managed the garden and did a little bug hunting in the sunshine .

I thought it might be a great activity to try and get Nila interested and excited about bugs rather than scared! - and we have a ton of different bugs in the garden at the minute.

We found plenty of Gaston’s first - if you guessed Ben and Holly’s little kingdom then brownie points for you :) , if not then , we found lots of ladybirds first and she was really intrigued but wouldn’t touch them but kept ‘awww’ ing them :)

We got Alessia’s small world out as she has had it for ages and decided to collect some snails . Kadiann use to have African land snails when she was little and we loved looking after them .

The girls hunted for some snails and Nila really got involved . Alessia loves finding snails and naming them so she was super excited to collect some and make a home for them in the bedroom!

We dug up some soil and collected some leaves and found a few snails - some had decided to leave home as we call it so were empty but we found two and the girls namesd them Leo and of course Upsy Daisy:)

We even got Nila stroking Leo which was amazing and In just one afternoon she’s come on so much! It’s been a good one today ...
