  • Your whole whānau can enjoy these fun sensory activities with simple items you have around home.

  • Chalk walk

    Get creative with chalk and make activity stations on your driveway. Include challenges such as spin around three times or games such as hopscotch.

    It’s a whole heap of fun for everyone in your bubble.

    Seasonal display

    When you’re out getting some fresh air around your local area, collect as many leaves, twigs, acorns or other items that you like the look of.

    Dry these out in a sunny spot at home. You can create a seasonal display for these items, such as in jars, glued to poster paper or a hanging mobile.

    This is a fun way to teach your child about the changing of seasons, how this affects our climate and outdoor spaces.


    This is a real-life outdoor treasure hunt using GPS devices that the whole whānau can get involved in.

    The aim is to navigate you and your team members to a set of GPS coordinates where you can then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at the location.

    Head online to find your closest geocaches:
