Trees EcoFun Park Outing

On Wednesday the 31st of July we had a wonderful and educational outing to Eco Trees Park in Benoni. At the Park the children had the opportunity to climb trees (and boy oh boy did they climb!) crawl through a tunnel , hide in a bush cave and look out of the tree house. We solved riddles and deciphered jumbled messages, some children enjoyed some time under the pin oak tree at a table where they could count out acorns into corresponding little buckets. This was a fun little numeracy activity to do in nature. A fun little fact about …

Most importantly though… it makes them feel seen, …
