Mighty Movers CBR #2 – Discovery Dig

Did you share Balloon Catch with your playgroup families and friends last week? Did it get them moving and having fun?

This week is Active Play Idea #2 – Discovery Dig.  No sandpit?  Not a problem, we’ve included an option for families without a sandpit, which doubles as a ‘less mess’ indoor version.

Discovery Dig isn’t only for toddlers and preschoolers. Sitting bubs love to be amongst the action of Discovery Dig, and bubs in arms will enjoy watching the other kids and what’s going on – so encourage parents to include them in the fun too!
