bush babies updates

Great start to the week at Kindy with a fun interactive Reptile show. Kim, the reptile man bought along some friendly reptiles for the children to look at and to touch. We got to pat a snake, hold a huge green frog, chase a turtle, kiss a cockroach and saw a lizard with a long blue tongue.

The children all got an opportunity to have a close up look at the reptiles and some were very brave and even held or touched one. The children made turtle and snake craft to go along with our visit.

With spring in the air we had our resident mother duck and her 9 ducklings come to visit us in the Bush Babies play ground. The mother duck marched them all in and they got stuck in the corner. Pete had to help usher them into the right direction so they could go back to their pond. The children loved watching them as they rested in the sun.

The bush babies loved playing in our new wooden car this week. We were very lucky to get a new car for our outdoor play area. This has promoted lots of car songs and pro social skills like turn taking and sharing. Thanks for a fun week Bush Babies.
