Lovely Mud at Nature Discovery in Fiordland

Today we had special visitors, Kim, Christine and Zair from Mairtown Kindergarten in Whangarei. We had fun showing all around the park where we have Nature Discovery. We walked a long way today, we showed them the pines, the singing log, the climbing trees, the jumping rocks, the Gnuff house and the beautiful views of the mountains at the top of the track. There was just so much to show them.
After lunch we found some big mud puddles and as you can see Jack, Charlie and Chris had so much fun in them -thank goodness for our special Nature Discovery clothing that kept us dry!

Exploring and Swinging

We were very lucky today at Nature Discovery. Martha's Dad made us a swing and rope bridge down in the pines. Lucy was one of the first to try the swing out she said "I really liked it."
It was also a day for searching, exploring and making discoveries. Martha and Georgia went on a spider hunt and ended up finding nests as well.
Martha said "We found them in a big dirt pile on a piece of wood." Georgia said "It was a good find and a good day."

It was Arthur's last day with us before he heads on holiday so as a wee surprise Dad called in for a visit with Arthur's dog Patch. Patch really enjoyed his time with us and the all children loved patting him.
