Braeside Bush Kids – Ropes, Knots and Construction

April 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Details: Join us at Braeside Park for our Bush Kids school holiday program where your child will learn essential bush survival skills, including how to tie rope knots and make all sorts of constructions to swing, hang and climb on!  Our program is for children aged 4 – 10 years and is specifically aimed at supporting children to develop important social, physical and emotional skills through hands-on learning and teaching them real-life bush survival and bushcraft skills.

This workshop is run by Laura , a secondary school teacher and outdoor educator.

The children will go on a bush walk, play nature games, learn rope knots and get to construct their own creation.

Our program is based on the leading research from world-renowned and leading Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Angela Hanscom, author of Balanced and Barefoot to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for learning and life skills, both physically and emotionally. As Angela illustrates, “too many of today’s children miss out on the full sensory richness offered beyond the walls of the classroom or home.”
