This week is Black Garden Ants Week in Exploring Nature With Children. We have had a heavy week this week. You may remember that my dear Mother-in-Law is very poorly, and she has needed a lot of care this week. We did not manage our nature walk, but we have been busy observing the natural world around us.
Rose found a particularly handsome snail, which she fed with banana and took some photographs of.
Our Space Seeds are coming along well! This tray contains seeds from the red packet. They are growing strong!
Our caterpillars are due to make their appearance any day soon. I am hoping today, as I have to go away with my big girl tomorrow for a night, and we don’t want to miss all the action!
Have a look at my Instagram page to see our dancing chrysalis.
We sketched a chrysalis for our nature journals
I am always so fascinated at how beautiful the chrysalis actually is, with its gentle golden highlights. (Please ignore my spelling mistakes!)
How are your nature studies coming along this week?
