Tadpoles & Pond Skaters – Ella’s been pond dipping, again!

Pond Dipping

I wrote last week how I love the fact that Ella can go pond dipping in the safety of our garden. She loves finding different bugs and getting Ant to find out what they are for her 🙂

    Now I used to love pond dipping as well, it is crazy how you forget that such things were fun!

    I used to LOVE pond dipping, we used to do it all the time as kids! I really need to take mine somewhere to do this. I love watching tadpoles turn to frogs that is so lovely x

    Nature is amazing and it’s so important that children get to experience it.

    What lovely pictures and I love taking my boys pond dipping. I remember Maxi being two and falling in the pond at my MIL and being so angry that she even let him near it!

    I used to love going tadpolling with my boys when they were younger. Looks like fun!

    Pond dipping is the best! I love it with my boys, I still remember fishing for stickleback in the local brook!

    If you build it the wildlife will come! It’s amazing what will find its way into a pond.

    Its nice to hear that kids still do these fun things instead of being glued to the tv or playing with technology.

    It looks like she had a lot of fun. I love it when fun and education naturally coincide. Mich x
