Join us for a special afternoon planned around a warm fire, siping tea, sharing stories and weaving nature items to make your own winter themed frame. Held in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges at Doongalla Picnic Ground in The Basin.
At Eco Explorers Bush Programs, we incorporate hands-on, child-led learning and sensory play through a range of nature-based activities, games, nature crafts, storytelling and songs.
Our program has been developed to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for school, both physically and emotionally.
This workshop is run by Claire.
Bush playgroup is an all weather outdoor playgroup so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Children and adults must wear closed footwear when walking in the bush, sun hats, sunscreen, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and even a change of clothes for those muddy play days! Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.
Ages: 5 – 12 years (siblings under 12 months are welcome to attend for free).
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times and are encourage to join in on the fun!
