A day to celebrate the sss-slitherers!

𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗶𝘀 '𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝗦𝗻𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗗𝗮𝘆' 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗯𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗱-𝗯𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘄!

At Wee Critters we believe that it doesn't matter how big or small we are everyone has an important role to play in our world, from the smallest bumblebee to the largest blue whale!

We bring along a range of props and educational resources to our sessions to aid learning. I wanted to be able to demonstrate the sheer size and length of the world's longest ever recorded snake that we share our world with, to allow comparison with our smallest snake (Dune the Kenyan sand boa) and to allow little explorers to visually witness how snakes constrict their prey in a really fun and safe way.

It doesn't matter how big an explorer you become it's always best to really annoy your mum with a project for school and my poor mum, Tracey, spent days sewing together a 10 metre snake, now affectionately named Monty, who joins me at my visits.

We did have one poor mother phone in to express her concern to her child's teacher when she saw a photo on SeeSaw of Monty, at 10 metres long, being wrapped around her child...and she had panicked when she thought he was real. A big sorry to her as Monty is utterly harmless (unless you are my poor mum who had several injuries with the amount of sewing it took to make him)!
