Did your playgroup take the opportunity to enjoy the lovely springtime weather and make an excursion to Floriade? This is a popular outing that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

One of the highlights for many is checking out the gnomes on Gnome Knoll. The variety of colours and decorations is always a sight to be seen. Lots of glitter and fancy costumes too! The creativity of some of the gnome artists is quite a delight.

Some of the wonderful artists this year consisted of members of ACT Playgroups’ MyTime and Playconnect playgroups for children with additional needs or chronic illness, or children with ASD or ASD like symptoms. The artists, all between the ages of one and four did a mighty job and represented their fellow playgroupers well.

Why not think about this as an activity your playgroup can participate in next year?
