A fantastic turn out saw yesterday (24th August 2016) plenty of children catching bugs and identifying them, making pipe-cleaner bugs even having their faces painted with bugs on them! A fun sweet stall was there to create edible bugs! we made lots of spiders and even some caterpillars! (We had some sea-creatures too at one point! A jelly fish and a crab!!) the competition for the best veggie bug was very popular too, and congratulations to everyone! They were amazing!
