A "Bush Birthday Party"!
My grandson's classmate had his 8th birthday at the big Ku-Ring-Gai Wildflower Garden in NSW, Australia.
Before they sat down to eat, the ranger took them on a guided walk on the trails and they collected natural things from the ground, like seeds and pods and leaves.
The ranger held a bowl of brown balls and cautioned the kids not to bite them because they were not chocolate.
They were lumps of moist clay!
Here's my sweet Eyal contemplating what kind of "bush critter" to make from the raw materials.
Here's what came out.
Two girls created these fanciful gardens.
What a fun way to combine nature walks with "organic bush crafts."
