ZooLab, who bring animal handling workshops to children across the UK, visited Romsey Children’s Centre, delighting thirty families with creepy crawly creatures.
Forty-two children had the chance to interact with a spider, millipede, giant snail, rat and snake: watching them close-up, touching and stroking the animals. It was an exciting morning during which the children experienced something totally new and some parents had to overcome their fears! One mum said, ‘I’m terrified of spiders but managed to hide that and be as interested as my son.’
It was a new venture for Romsey Children’s Centre and one we’d like to repeat.
