Look at this little snail I found ☺️🐌 I've never come across a snail, let alone one so tiny! #snail #bugs #bug #tiny #tinysnail #nature #bughunting #gardenfinds #tinycritter #lookcloser #littlecreatures
The Early Years children have had a lovely couple of mornings enjoying this gorgeous weather out in Forest School. #rgsspringfield #forestschool #bughunting #playbasedlearning #outdoors #passionforteaching #letthembelittle #learnthroughplay
Bug hunting afternoon which includes making a family of snails 🐌 We are really relieved to have had an offer accepted on another house today so finally we can look forward to having our own home again. Local to the house will be a lovely park and countryside walks which will be great for the children . . . . . . #autismawareness #autism #asd #autismacceptance #nature #bughunting #outdoors #gardening #digging #wellies #sunshine #live #love #learn #educate #greatoutdoors #blogger #blog #differentnotless #happy #mumblob #ourstory #ourjourney
Talk about camouflage! We found this Scalloped Hazel moth larvae on some of the leaves we collected from the groundsmen at school the other day. We collected it in one of our new fancy bug pots (😉) and observed how it moved around like a little, squidgy, moving twig ☺️ . . . The larvae of the Scalloped Hazel moth occur in two distinct forms - a common brown form (like the one we found) and a scarcer green form that resembles lichen in appearance! How cool is that! Nature, you continue to amazing me! 🙏🏻💚🐛 . . . #forestschool #caterpillar #caterpillars #moth #larvae #outdoorclassroom #lookcloser #takeacloserlook #camoflauge #nature #naturalworld #outdoorslife #learn #teach #discover #explore #bughunting #science #learnthroughplay #holisticeducation
Had to share this little beaut we found in garden! 🕷 It’s really tiny - smaller than a little finger nail. The kids were fascinated by it’s almost translucent look - until I did what most people would do and look it up 😱 • Turns out this is a White Crab Spider who doesn’t use webs 🕸 to catch its prey - it pounces on them and dissolves them with its gut juices 🤢 • Nice photos though, eh?... • Might have put the kids off of National Children’s Gardening Week now. How about you? Do you encourage your kids to be green fingered or to explore the garden? . . . #ncgw #nationalchildrensgardeningweek #rhschelseaflowershow #nationalgardeningweek #spider #crabspider #getoutside #getoutsideandplay #bughunting #bughunt #gardenfun #gardeningisfun #kids #essex #essexmums #leighonsea #southendonsea #leighonseamums #leighonseaessex #hadleigh #rayleighessex #thisprettyengland #westcliffonsea #benfleet #wednesdayfun #motherhood #mumsofig #mumofinstagram #funinthesun #mumsofessex
Just a chilled Wednesday, doing some jobs, seeing friends and home again for a nap....but always, always time to stop and enjoy nature. #bughunting #balancedandbarefoot #earthplay #eyfs #nature #forestschool #earlylearning #earlyyears #snail Gorgeous balloon dress by @yay.weekend.kids.uk 🎈❤️
For a family walk with a theme during your stay in the New Forest, how about bug hunting from Ladycross car park in amongst the huge oaks. Cycle the trails here for some extra fun.

We had loads of fun bug hunting during our #forestschool session yesterday and this beautiful book was the perfect companion. 🐜🐞🐌🦋🐛🕷We don’t often share non-fiction books as a whole group and so it was great to see how the children responded - they had so much to say! They were super keen and so observant and their enthusiastic exclamations of delight (while perhaps terrifying for the bugs 😆) when they discovered something were a joy to hear. It’s brilliant that such a simple activity absorbed them for such a long time and it truly shows the power and importance of letting children dictate their own learning experiences. It was also great to see the conversations - and the actions taken - around managing riskier tasks like climbing and moving logs. Very proud of them all! #bughotel @clover_robin #libbywalden #letthemplay #letthembelittle #getoutside #childhoodunplugged #childledlearning #riskyplay #bugs #bughunting #teachersofinstagram #eyfs #nonfiction #lovebooks #lovereading #whatweread #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #kidlitart #lostinnature #lostinabook @gatherandgrow #caterpillarbooks
Smallest campfire is 5. She was hunting for grasshoppers yesterday and came across this teeny one. It was about the size of a pen nib. Soooo teeny. . . . #BugHunting #Grasshopper #TimeWellSpent #LetThemPlay #Adventure #Nature #FarmLife #Outside

Moscow watchdogs were bred out from three different breeds: saint bernard, caucasian ovcharka and russian spotted hound. I can't decide when he is hunting for all sorts of bugs, whether it is his hound face or the watchdog face that comes to priority 😎 #moscowguarddog #moscowwatchdog #moscowwatchdogsofinstagram #moskauerwachhund #moszkvaiőrkutya #moszi #moszimámor #crossbreed #saintbernard #caucasianovcharka #russianspottedhound #huntingdog #insecthunting #bughunting #flyhunting #familydog #watchdog #guarddog #russianbreed #territorial #dognation #dogsofinstaworld #dogonduty #mansbestfriend #lifeisbetterwithdogs #k9onduty #dogphotography #homeiswherethedogis
Came across a smaller but beautiful ichneumon wasp today and had to share! Ichneumon are also known as parasitic wasps due to their method of laying eggs, which is inserting them into other soft bodies bugs such as caterpillars. There are species of ichneumon that can be way bigger than this one and the ovipositor reaching towards 3 inches!
Evelyn seems to be working her way through all the ‘B’ words.
