#30DaysWild Day Six – Snails

DaySixHaving revisited The Snail and the Whale for my five-year-old’s home learning I had also done a quick search for other snail activities for us to try out.

Thanks to How to Montessori for including the recipe Baking with Kids – Easy Mini Cinnamon Snails on its website we spent the morning making some marshmallow-eyed molluscs.

MatissesMagicalTrailIn the afternoon we turned to Twinkl educational resources again and labelled the parts of a snail followed by reading a new book for us.  Matisse’s Magical Trail by  Tim Hopgood is a tale of an inspirational artistic snail and was recommended accompanying reading on the White Rose Maths website which Willow’s home learning was sourced from.

Twinkl’s website also made us aware that today was the 10th Butterfly Education and Awareness Day (BEAD) organised by the Association For Butterflies so I had planned several butterfly-inspired activities too but the “determined insistence” of our seven year old in requesting we inflate our new paddling pool inside the house rather overtook the rest of the day and we only got as far as coronating Willow with this lifecycle crown but she is always happy when her regal inclinations are acknowledged.
