When we take time to explore in the woods or fields, sometimes we make exciting discoveries! Have you every seen something in nature that was completely new to you? Something that you had never seen before? This happened to the Gumboot kids as they solved The Case of The Spotted Jelly.
"I just want to be a frog,
sitting here on a log.
Flicking my tongue at flies,
and big round eyes.
I couldn’t dream
of a better life,
I can’t think
of a greener life!”
Frogs are fascinating creatures to observe. Can you hop like a frog? Bend down really low with your knees out to each side, place your hands on the floor. Now push hard with your legs and boost your self up in the air! Once you can do this, you are ready to go outside and play LILY PAD HOP!

We would love to see pictures of your Lily Pad Course! Post on Facebook or Instagram and tag @Gumbootkids using #Gumbootkids.

Did you know colour can change how we feel? We can also use colour to express our feelings. What colour represents how you feel right now?
