We're going on a bug hunt #30DaysWild day 13


With apologies to Michael Rosen ..... but....


We're going on a bug hunt.
We're going to find a big one.
What a beautiful day
We're not scared.
Uh-oh - Grass!
Long wavy grass.
The bugs are on it.
The beetles are under it.
Oh no!
We have to take pictures of them!
Clicky click, buzzy bye. I've taken the photo!
We're going on a bug hunt.
We're going to find a big one.
What a beautiful day
We're not scared
Uh-oh-Flowers!
what a pretty flower.
The wasp is on it.
The flies are under it.
We have to take pictures of them!
Busy whizzy, flittery fly. I've taken the photo!
We're going on a bug hunt.
We're going to find a big one.
What a beautiful day
We're not scared.

Uh-oh  Ladybirds!
A ladybird.
Sitting on my shoulder
Walking on my shoulder
We have to take pictures of it!
Flutter, butter, spotty dotty. Eldest has taken the photo!
We're going on a bug hunt.
We're going to find a big one.
What a beautiful day
We're not scared.


#30DaysWild - what makes you burst into poetry?

And the original? well here it is ...

Bears
We're Going on a Bear Hunt

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh ,oh!
Grass,
Long, wavy, grass.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go throught it!
Swishy swashy, swishy swashy.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh ,oh!
Mud,
Thick, oozy mud.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go throught it!
Squelch squelch, squelch squelch

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh ,oh!
A river,
A deep, cold river.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go throught it!
Splish splosh, splish splosh.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh ,oh!
A forest,
A big, dark forest.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go throught it!
Stmble trip, stumble trip.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh ,oh!
A cave,
A scary, dark cave.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go throught it!
Tiptoe, tiptoe.

OH NO IT'S A BEAR!!!
Quick!
Through the cave, tiptoe, tiptoe,
Through the forest, stumble trip, stumble trip,
Through the river, splish splosh, splish spolosh,
Through the mud, squelch squelch, squelch squelch,
Through the grass, swishy swashy, swishy swashy.
Run to the house, run up the stairs,
Oh oh forgot to shut the door!
Run back downstairs, shut the door,
Run back up, to the bedroom,
Jump into bed, pull up the covers,
WE ARE NEVER GOING ON A BEAR HUNT AGAIN!!


Little Bear

Are you sleepy, Are you sleepy
Little bear, little bear?
Wintertime is coming,
Wintertime is coming,
Very soon, very soon.

Find a cave, Find a cave,
Little bear, little bear
Wintertime is here,
Wintertime is here,
Go to sleep, go to sleep.

Are you sleepy, Are you sleepy
Little bear, little bear?
You will wake in springtime
In the warm, warm springtime
Little bear, little bear

Time to wake up, Time to wake up
Little bear, little bear
Springtime is here, springtime is here
Wake up now, wake up now!


Big paws,
Big black nose,
Stubby tail,
And growl he goes.

What is he?
Well, who knows?
He sleeps all winter
When it snows.

  1. Wow amazing shots. I especially like the golden inscect in the first photo collage. I would be way to scared to photograph the spider! Nice incorporating the bugs with the bear hunt poem.Sorry, Bug Hunt. ;)

  3. Lovely bug pictures but I was even more drawn to the poems, clever how you changed them to fit your story. I did not know any of them. Thanks. xx
