We started with a slight hiccup this morning - with the gate to Currawong Bush Park shut and broken down! Luckily there was Bucks Reserve over the road, so we shimmied on over there. It was a beautiful day for a walk among the gum trees, listening for birds, catching skinks and enjoying some relaxing time in nature.
We had our youngest member join our bush playgroup today - a baby of only 7 weeks! I am sure she was taking in all the sounds and sights of the bush, already making those important connections in her brain.
We played 'Marsupial Match-up' followed by 'What habitat is that marsupial from?' We also enjoyed collecting sticks, leaves, bark and flowers to make little homes/nests for ants, crocodiles and fairies! The children and parents learnt the call of a Grey Fantail, who was busy flying around us while we ate our lunch.
Our next session will be a Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary on 3 December. It will also be a little christmas party too! Look forward to seeing you there for our last session for 2014!
