One of our programs favourite things to do is to find baby frogs on the trail. And to our delight we found some as soon as we started hiking. Our rules for catching the frogs are to be gentle as possible. And once done examining return them to their home.
Our group was quick and used their eye hand coordination to catch the first ones.
The children soon found out if they worked together one could look out for the frogs, while the others could catch them. That way they could get more.
"Look it I was so quick and I caught one!"
"Look he's so tiny."
Throughout the search there was so much conversation going on. Where did all these frog come from, what do they eat? Where do they live? Why are there so many? Plus many more inquisitive questions.
Half way through we stopped for lunch at a garden labrenth. We did some exploring and even played a game of hide and seek.
The rest of the day was spent exploring and releasing our 75 frogs that we caught!
We can't wait to go back next week to see what awaits us at Kings park.
