The Kings Park Home Delivery project helps keep your kids  entertained and  feeling connected  to nature and  our community  during this challenging time  in WA. 

The project  aims to  keep kids connected with nature, promote resilience and encourage positive feelings about the world around  us.   

The first phase of the project provided ‘I like...’ adventures for each day of the April 2020 school holidays. Activities and resources covered topics such as ‘I like drawing animal cartoons’, ‘I like trees’ and ‘I like egg hunts’ and focus children’s attention on the following themes: 

  • Nature 
  • Gratitude
  • Community

Daily videos featuring Kings Park staff, activity sheets and other resources were published in a closed Facebook group and on the Kings Park website during April. An art competition and a ‘snail mail’ campaign where kids decorate their mailboxes and receive messages and packages by old-fashioned post were features of the project. Families were invited to interact and share their experiences online in this community-focused project.

The best educational and childhood research was applied by the Kings Park Education team in creating these resources.  

A second phase of this project will support home learning in Term 2 with educational resources for parents, teachers and students. These will focus on Nyoongar culture, creativity, sustainability and STEM.
