We're going on a snail hunt..

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall 

Having been sent a Snail World kit to review my children immediately wanted to try it out. So they donned warm clothing and headed out into our garden...




We looked by the shed:



We looked under the bushes:



We looked along the fence by the drive:




But all we found was this one empty snail shell:



So it appears that all the snails are still sensibly hibernating! Looks like we will have to have another snail hunt when the weather is warm enough for them to come out.. A good lesson in studying minibeast habits though.

  3. Give it another month and they will be out, snail world kit sounds fun. I remember mine making snail homes in ice cream tubs last year. Hours of fun and rich pickings from our greenhouse! Thanks for linking up, I look forward to seeing the follow up post too.

  9. We went looking for them the other week too but only found empty shells. Where do snails hibernate?
