Last week, we went on a family bug hunt organised by Highfield Park Trust.
It was a lovely morning; the hunt was well organised, fun, engaging and informative. We both learned lots of new things!
There were 17 questions, which could be answered by finding the different information cards hidden around the park.
For example, did you know ants use their head to block the entrance to their nest to keep intruders out?
Squiggle found out that a male wasp is called a drone.
I had no idea that a praying mantis only has one ear and Squiggle was very surprised that woodlice has 14 legs.
There were sweet prizes for everyone who completed the quiz, which Squiggle was very happy about! But not as excited as she was when she spotted that they had some of their delicious apple juice for sale, made locally from apples collected from the park orchard.
The bug hunt also inspired her to create one of her own back at home, in the garden for her toys.
Even a cat came to join in the fun and followed her around finding them all!
Great family fun, big thumbs up from us.
Stay Wild everyone!
