Little Hands on the Land

Where: The Paddock
When: Daily 9am-6pm
There's a kid-sized working farm in The Paddock teaching kids the crop-to-shop agriculture story.

After welcoming over 40,000 little farmers in 2021, once again the Paddock will be transformed into a kid-sized working farm aimed to teach 2 – 10-year-olds about agriculture from crop-to-shop.

Little Hands on the Land is a free activity that takes children on a journey through stations including a chook shed, fruit orchard, veggie 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 – the Woolworths supermarket.


The Homestead Station
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.

Chook Shed Station. You’ll collect one egg in this shed.
Check the box that’s straw lined,
In this nest an “egg” you’ll find.
Put just one in your bucket and off you scoot
Next stop is to pick some fruit.

Strawberry Patch Station. Find one juicy red strawberry.
Pick a bright red strawberry from the patch,
Ripe and juicy the perfect match.
Put it in your bucket and then walk straight ahead,
And make your way into the horse shed.

Horse Shed Station. Here we groom our pony’s tails.
Clip a lead on your horse before giving him a treat
Then brush out his tail, smooth and neat.
Add some extra treats to your bucket, then quick, out the door,
Go to the patch with the vegies that bunnies adore.

Veggie Patch Station. Dig yourself up a carrot or potato.
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.

Cow Shed Station. Milk the cow and put a bottle in your bucket. 
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?

Flowers for bees Station. Collect some pollen thanks to your bee.
Help the honeybee meet the flower,
bees need pollen as their super power.
Dip him down, he just needs one go
And put the pollen in the bucket, don’t be slow

Pony Barrel Race Station. Take a ride on a pony.
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.

Outback Tractor Pull Station. Drive one lap around the track!
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.

Farmers Market Station. All your goods need to go in their own baskets.
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.

The Woolworths Supermarket Station. Buy yourself a healthy treat, and wash your farmer’s hands before you eat!
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!
