Caterpillars and butterflies were the theme of this month’s Little Owls Club which was, as always, great fun for everyone involved. The children did a variety of craft activities, listened to the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, danced with their butterflies in the garden, and even got to experience what it feels like for a caterpillar to transform by wrapping themselves up in cocoons! The nature based preschool group also took the time to tend to their vegetable patch and managed to harvest over 30 potatoes, a number of pea pods, and handfuls of radishes. Special thanks this month go Molly and Hettie who made cakes and biscuits for the group to celebrate that they’re leaving for big school after the holidays, we wish them all the best and hope they continue to enjoy getting out in nature. 

Next month’s theme will be Space, no need to book, just turn up at the RSPB Discovery Zone in Wat Tyler Park at 10am on Wednesday 10th August.
