Create your own yucky supermarket by labelling tins of mini beasts!
Who will be in yours and how many?
Pick your tin!
Look at the different sizes of these cylinders!
Look at making labels and think about the amount that will be in that tin! If you draw around the old label then you can get the exact size.
Pick your minibeast contents. Are there going to be just one minibeast in a can? Make labels as fancy as you want!
Then go shopping and combine your tins of yuck!
How many minibeasts would I have if I had a tin of my caterpillars and a tin of slugs?
What about half a tin of worms and a tin of slugs? Look at different combinations. Write/ mark make a list or recipe.

Sensory / fine motor skills:
1. Worm Dance
Worms come to the surface when they hear the rain on the ground. Sometimes noises convince them it is raining and to come up. Can you make up your own rain dance to make the worms appear?
Some cultures do dances to make it rain as well! You can look these up on the internet to get some ideas.
Could you put your dance to music? Or use your favourite tune?
Think about noisy moves like rain to get those worms to show themselves!
