Frogs & Snails & Puppy Dogs Tails…

Snail races!  

Yes, I need to do something about the snails in our garden, but in the meantime…

“Frogs & snails and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of…”

Someone just forgot to tell that to the girls in my house!

    I also used to love playing with snails. It&#39;s good to see kids still find them appealing! Max always has a snail pet or two on the go. I make him set them free after a day or so. We don&#39;t see too many of them around our place as the birds all gobble them up! x

    These snails look a bit cute actually. The ones we have a huge and a bit yucky really but it never stops my youngest playing with them. It&#39;s nice to see little ones playing with them, I don&#39;t think I could though. x

    I cannot believe how big those things are! That is crazy. And what brave little kids that they have those climbing all over their hands and arms. That is wonderful. <br />Thanks so much for linking up with the Outdoor Play Link Up! Playing with insects in nature is awesome play that lots of teachers and moms could be reminded about. <br />Thanks!

    snails are ace fun! <br />I was at the Dr&#39;s on Friday with my sick girl and while having her nebuliser another family came in and the siblings of the sick child bought their pet snails with them. Checking out the snails made having her neb way more fun!

    These snails are amazing to me. I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, a very dry, prairie place – and have never seen snails like these. How wonderful!!!<br />I just needed to visit here after seeing this great picture over at Kierna&#39;s blog.<br />Brenda

    what great pictures. I love watching snails and have been introducing them to my son. He doesn&#39;t like holding them but he loves watching them and collecting empty snail shells. Great post.
