Brushing Sir Bowie Charles the little pony.
The guinea pigs are a great attraction. A little while ago we replaced the back of the ute with a tray top and kept the old ute back as a place for the children to connect with the guinea pigs. It certainly helps me as I no longer have to run around the paddock trying to catch those guinea pigs which have escaped from little hands. The children love the guinea pigs and will sit for quite a long time with them in their lap.
Some rubber matting on the floor gives a comfortable place to sit.
I keep the group quite small, just 12 adults, so that the children aren't overwhelmed by too many people and they all get a chance to interact with the animals.
I try to bring some seasonal activity to each tour. This week we used the apple slinky to peel and cut some apples ....
....and made some paper pots. We popped a snow pea in each little pot and the children took them home to care for.
