Pirrku Explorers - Bowerbirds

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Pirrku Explorers is a social session with a range of educational activities suitable for children approximately 2 - 7 years and their carers. Each month we explore a new theme, discover something new and make friends playing along the way.  Pirrku Explorers takes place on the first Friday of each month.

The Kaurna word for story is pirrku and Pirrku Garden is the name of the garden area we are establishing at the rear of the Evanston Gardens Library.  This program takes place (weather depending) outside in the recently established Pirrku Garden. The area has dappled shade so we recommend hats and sunscreen. If the weather is not suitable we will relocate inside the library. 

May - Bowerbirds

National Simultaneous Storytime is held in May each year and this year the book is Bowerbird Blues so we thought we'd help the bowerbird build a giant nest. Plus some little ones to take home.

June - Castles & Dragons

Come build a castle and discover dragons. This is loose play fun as we use imagination to explore make believe worlds.

July - Insects & Worms

The bug catchers will come out and we will be digging for worms, learning about the mini-beasts in our local environment.
