2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Come and enjoy us for an afternoon in the sunshine! There’s nothing more enjoyable than the feeling of dirt running through your fingers and creating your own native bee hotel to take home! We’ll be at the community garden busy digging, planting and being creative to your heart’s delight. Bees play an important environmental role in pollinating plants and this is a great workshop to learn all about them.
Children will make their own native bee habitat using various natural and recycled materials as well as learning how to safely use tools such a drill and hammer to help develop fine motor skills.
Our native bee habitats are good for hibernation and breeding in warmer months.
Facilitated by Penny, a forest school leader and playgroup facilitator who runs our Brimabk park bush playgroups.
Eco Explorers runs outdoors in all-weather so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Children must have closed footwear when walking in the bush, sun hats, sunscreen, wet weather gear, plenty of snacks and water and a change of clothes. Our playgroup will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong winds.
Ages: 3 – 10 years (siblings under 14 months are welcome to attend for free).
*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
