Ru's Butterfly Garden

For Ru's 6th birthday, his Nana and Gramps bought him an insect lore butterfly garden with ten caterpillars. All the other three boys have had their own so it was nice for Ru to be able to do it at a time where he'd be really interested in them.

Over the past few months he has developed a fear of bees and fly's which has increased in the last few weeks where he has been scared to go into the garden alone in case he sees one, so we were hoping that this may help break the fear of insects and bees.... fingers crossed.

We hadn't really gone prepared enough, we packed one hand towel to dry feet off on the off chance they wanted to paddle, juice for the boys and a flask of coffee for Jon and I.
Once there, they practically dived in fully clothed straight away! That one hand towel definitely hand its work cut out for it,
It was nice to see them away from their games and all having fun, there was no moaning or arguing and they all played nicely as brothers, they even all made sure Ru was safe and no one was being left out....even Noah cracked a few smiles, which doesn't happen v…
