10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us at Gresswell Forest Wildlife for our Bush kids program where we will be going on a scat and track hunt to discover all the AMAZING creatures that live at Gresswell Forest Wildlife Reserve! There will be plenty of games and activities for the children to enjoy as they learn about the different tracks and scats. Our program is for children aged 3 – 10 years and is specifically aimed at supporting children to develop important social, physical and emotional skills through hands-on learning and teaching them real-life bush survival and bushcraft skills.
The bush kids workshop is run by Jessie, a conservationist and environmental educator.
Our program is based on the leading research from world-renowned and leading Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Angela Hanscom, author of Balanced and Barefoot 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 learning and life skills, both physically and emotionally. As Angela illustrates, “too many of today’s children miss out on the full sensory richness offered beyond the walls of the classroom or home.”
Please note: That we are mindful of our environmental impact so are careful when moving sticks and only build a few cubbies which are then taken back down at the end.
Ages: 3- 10 years
*Parents must stay and supervise their children at all times.
