I remember collecting frog spawn as a kid, keeping it in an old washing up bowl in the garden, being thrilled to see the transformation from spawn, to tadpoles, to frogs, then finally releasing them back into the stream we found them in.. Am so hoping our own pond will be used by the frogs next year, and that my little one will get to see the cycle for himself 😀
I wasn’t keen at first, but my youngest is insect/bug/slimey things obsessed! He loves finding them, and hates leaving them outside, so I thought this would be perfect. What I didn’t count on was how fascinating I would find them! They are huge, and really quite interesting.. who would have thought it! I decided to get two because I think it would be great for him to see the life cycle of the laying of eggs, the growth of tiny snails etc..
We are excitedly awaiting the delivery of the stick insects next week!
