Our fnal zoo trip for the year.
A programme created just for us by Edwina, the zoo education officer.
There were 3 stations set up in the Education Centre.
Station 1 : Treasure Hunt
Each child was given a questionnaire and a pack of animal skulls and footprints cutouts to paste. Hints to the questions were pasted on the wall
Station 2: Pinata
The children had to blow up balloons, secure the balloon onto a string and paste newspapaer all over it.
Station 3: Nasi Lemak
Grab a handful of rice and fruit mixture and place onto a piece of banana leaf
The rice mixture is then wrapped in the banana leaf and secured with a natural string cut out from the midrib of the banana leaf
Sliced papaya and banana
Packets of 'nasi lemak' ready for the elephants
Papier Mache activity

We were supposed to run around the zoo looking for the answers but the boys decided to complete it in the comfort of an air-conditioned eatery over lunch.
