10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us at Langwarrin Flora & Fauna Reserve for our Bush Kids school holiday program where we will be going on a scat and track hunt to discover all the AMAZING creatures!
There will be plenty of outdoor games and hands on learning and activities for the children to enjoy as they learn about the different types of animal tracks and scats. Then after our bush walk, we’ll come together to create using clay and other materials our own tracks. We will even try our hand at making square shaped scat like wombats do!
Our Bush Kids program is for children aged 3.5 – 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 Lauren who has a background in Zoology and Microbiology.
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 please be careful to not disturb the flora and fauna.
Ages: 3.5 – 10 years
*Parents must stay and supervise their children at all times. (Only 1 adult per family)
