PRETEND PLAY & SERIOUS FUN @ HOME
Below are our FREE activities for all Community Heroes to enjoy some pretend play and serious fun at home.
We love this quote by one of our favourite scientists, Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Join us on an inspirational journey as your little Community Hero channels their inner Einstein and unleashes their imagination as we explore the wonders of science. Scroll down to access your FREE activity packs filled with learning & fun.
To start, why not dress up as a Scientist and enjoy some fun colouring in sheets from National Science Week - click here to download
“Scientists are curious. The scientific method is about asking questions and then doing experiments to find the answer. One of the most important parts of science is to make a hypothesis – a possible explanation of what might be happening.” [Early Childhood Australia & National Science Week].
