Description

Mini Explorers: Guwal Gili Playgroup

A weekly term-time playgroup at the Australian Museum for children aged 3 - 5 years and their parents or carers.

Mini Explorers playgroup will inspire your little ones to explore, understand and care for our world through fun, hands-on activities led by Aboriginal educators. Join us each Friday at 11 am to play, learn and create in our Jarums Room.

Numbers are limited to 15 children per session and each month has a different theme. Young children love repetition so feel free to join us as many weeks as you like!

A great opportunity to make the morning of it by exploring the Museum's Kidspace before or after the playgroup and grab coffee or lunch at our rooftop café, No. 1 William.

Gili, Ngara - shine and listen to learn!


Upcoming themes:

FEBRUARY - MEGAFAUNA!
We may not have been around as long as the dinosaurs, but Aboriginal people have lived alongside some of our biggest and oldest animals - Megafauna!!

MARCH - GADI
Welcome to Gadigal Country! We will be learning about Gadigal people, history, culture and the Country we live on. Make a bark canoe and see if it floats, learn a pipi dance and hear a story about an Emu in the Sky.

APRIL - FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Join us for a sensory extravaganza where participants smell, touch and taste bush foods such as sweet native honey and sour finger limes.
