New exhibit! The Daily Telegraph Paddock will be transformed into a kid-sized working farm aimed to teach young ones about agriculture from crop-to-shop.
Little Hands on the Land is a free activity that takes children on a journey through 9 stations including a chook shed, fruit orchard, sheep shed, vegie patch, cow shed, pony barrel race and an outback tractor pull. Next stop, the farmers' market where produce collected along the way is traded for farm dollars which can be spent at the final destination - Woolworths supermarket.
To start your adventure shop to crop,
Take a bucket, pop on an apron and then off you hop.
Collecting lots of things along the way,
You’ll be quite busy working on the land today.
Station 1. Chook Shed. You'll find an egg in this shed.
Check the box that's straw lined,
In this nest an "egg" you'll find.
Put it in your bucket and off you scoot,
Next stop is to pick some fruit.
Station 2. Fruit Orchard. What can you see on the tree?
Pick an "apple" from a tree,
in your bucket it should be.
Now go straight ahead,
To the sheep shed.
Station 3. Sheep Shed. Here we keep our woolly sheep.
Wool keeps us warm from our head to our feet
Collect a tuft and thank Mr Sheep.
Add it to your bucket, there's more to do.
Go to the barn with the animals that "moooo".
Station 4. Vegie Patch. Think big when you have a dig!
Potatoes and carrots everywhere.
Dig one out of the dirt with care.
Hold it up and give it a brush.
Better get going, you're in a rush.
Station 5. Cow Shed. What's the deal? That cow's not real!
Take your turn to milk the "cow".
Could you do it? Take a bow.
Collect a bottle to sell at the market.
Does everything still fit in your bucket?
Station 6. Pony Barrel Race. A course for a horse.
Ride your "pony" around the track.
Go 'round the barrel and then race back.
Feed your pony some pretend hay.
You have to go, but here he'll stay.
Station 7. Outback Tractor Pull. The orange tractor has the x-factor!
Drive your tractor with your feet.
Around the course you can't be beat.
Better find a place to park it,
It's time to head to the farmers' market.
Station 8. Farmers Market. This is where a trade is made.
Take all the things you found on the land,
Put them in the bins to give us a hand.
Now you get "farm dollars" to spend,
When you reach The Shop at the end.
Station 9. Woolworths Supermarket. Your last stop is this shop!
Thank you for visiting Little Hands on the Land.
Now our farmers' journey you understand.
You've worked very hard on the land today,
So buy a treat with "farm dollars", hip, hip hooray!
