Kirsty (Kirsty’s Family Day Care and Jo (Joey’s Daycare) combined with the Butterfly House to produce the WOW factor for the children in care.
A World of Wonder was on offer for children.
The children saw different coloured butterfly’s, a caterpillar and felt some wings that have fallen off butterfly’s. The butterfly house was very hot and the children noticed the difference in the temperature compared to outside.
Our next stop was the reptile area before the dinosaur show. After the show we sat down for a lovely picnic , followed by running and exploring in the maze. The older children enjoyed helping the little ones find their way.
At home we set up some insects and butterfly’s, leaves and dirt in the tuff trays and used tweezers and magnifying glasses to investigate further.
Miss D also got out her butterfly wings and put them on and ran around pretending to be a butterfly.
Since the children really enjoyed this excursion we are going to look into going to the new reptile park that has opened in The Big Banana.
