Recently at nursery James has been learning about frogs and where they come from etc. This has left him enthusiastically telling us all about tadpoles and where frogs come from.
They have some tadpoles in nursery that he loves looking at and seeing them change.
This struck an idea in my head why not catch our own tadpoles!!
So off we set with our fishing nets and bucket in hand to a local field that has small pond which is always FULL of tadpoles and we managed to catch some.
James had such fun trying to catch them and proudly brought home his 6 tadpoles and popped them into a plastic fish tank we have.
He hasn't stopped looking at them with his magnifying glass since and has noticed them some have tiny little legs starting to grow!
We plan on letting them go again back into the pond we caught them from once they start turning into frogs but for now its a great little activity for James to watch and learn all about how they turn into frogs right before his eyes.
A Fun, Free and Educational activity for a Saturday afternoon!
What have you been up to this weekend?
