We love the book ‘The Snail and The Whale’ and the kids were mesmerized by the recent cartoon adaptation (thank you Hilary Groves for downloading it for us).
Following a deluge of rain the other day the girls were delighted to find a stream flowing through the awning, thank good ness for the temporary decking so everything stayed dry.
We made paper boats and splashed in the river until Felicity spotted some snails that needed ‘saving’!
Flossy decided that they wanted a ride in the boats, they had other ideas!
Felicity wanted to watch them in the water ‘swimming’. Again they had other ideas.
Felicity was clearly affected by all this snail talk and work because the next day she sat and drew ‘the snail and the whale’ to show daddy :-).
Life and learning are so much fun when there is time to divert and follow the children’s interests and passions.
