I'm not sure I'd take it so calmly if my children bought snails home! Lovely pictures though and a great opportunity for them to learn :-)

My son loves to count snails from this wall on the way to school! He in on my lap at the moment & he shouted 'look mummy snails!' good thing that he lets them be in there cuz i am a bit scared of them =P #minicreations

Drawing them was an awesome idea - they are a great creature to draw! #letkidsbekids

They did love watching them and yes i thought drawing them would be educational !!

They must have loved observing the snails! It's a good thing you did the drawing activity too. #letkidsbekids

Thanks, they have been snails several times this week.

Lol this is so cute and so lovely! Nice to see them so interested in them! The bit about the pre-school teacher made me giggle! Great drawings too and the rucksack play sounds fun! xx #letkidsbekids

Lucas says - I love Snails and I think you ROCK for linking this up. I think you should ask your Mother to buy some of your own. Then ask for spiders, lizards and snakes!!!!!
Grace - Lucas..................... behave!!!!

My daughter has a growing obsession with garden bugs, I can see this happening to us. Lovely pictures! #BinkyLinky

I wasn’t overly keen myself! They went outside at teatime, they weren’t staying any longer!

the drawings are fab from your little one but I'm really not sure what I would do if my boys came home with snails in a box but to be honest my eldest is a bit scared of creepy crawleys the little one however thinks everything's his friends!

We are really into bugs at the moment too x

Thanks for your lovely comment. I agree, it was me that suggested the side view after her lovely top views!, she described her pictures as she was drawing and had them all correct, not sure why I needed her to do a side view too!

My two are really into bugs at the moment!

Thanks, we followed it up with a woodland walk looking for bugs and a visit to a butterfly farm at the weekend.

I love this post so much. I think it's brilliant that the pre-school staff have allowed the children to explore real live creatures and take them to share with the family, and I am completely smitten with her drawings. In the UK an adult or older child would never draw a top down view of a snail like that, and as she gets older she'll realise it's not usual and wouldn't do it. So much creativity is stifled by accepted norms - alas it's the same for everybody :)

Those drawings are fab!! My 4 year old is obsessed with snails at the moment, the poor things get terrorised by her, she likes watching the "snail snot" lol #minicreations x
