We're going on a snail hunt... we're going to find a big one... a small one... a tiny one
We're not scared (well not all of us)
Uh-oh a puddle - a big, deep puddle
We can't go over it, we can't go under it
Oh NO! We have to go through it...
splash splash splash....

What's that...?
It's got two wiggly feelers
Its got one stripy shell
Oh No - ITS A SNAIL....
The big bad snail... one of them at least

the children were VERY excited - we had found one snail last week - and since it had rained all night I thought there might be the odd snail out and about... there were LOADS of them

here is the small garden we went snail hunting in

the snails was not the only fun to be had - making water "jewels" roll was also fun

Getting wet, getting close up - and for some trying to over win fears that snails bite

and for others getting tickled by a snail


  1. What a lovely post. I love the bear hunt theme :-)

  2. Snails and slugs are not my favourite, but the boys seem to have a great knack for finding them and then showing me them very close to my face. Im slowly becoming used to it! Loved the bear hunt start, thanks for sharing at the Outdoor Play Party
