Charlotte the Cicada Fanatic

Cicada 'pet' and bubbles

Charlotte is fascinated with cicadas this summer. Ever since she’s watched ‘Bindi the Jungle Girl‘ Charlotte’s discovered a new level of confidence in handling creatures great and small.

Cicadas are the sound of summer and this year we’ve had a few ‘pet’ cicadas accompany us out on various trips – in a well sealed and ventilated container of some description. Today, Charli and Sophie had a wonderful time in the garden capturing a cicada and studying it in awe. They even took it on a walk to show the neighbours!

And as for the glove wear… mmm, those are my gloves, but I wasn’t complaining – who am I to stop the enthusiastic discoveries of my young scientists.
