Developed and made in Australia by Leave it to Leslie this childcare resource is a fun way to introduce and educate all children to our unique blend of Australian animals and birds whilst teaching them some indigenous language.
You may want to research your own local area for the Indigenous names of animals and birds as in Australia there are more than 250 Indigenous languages including around 800 dialects! Sing this to the tune of old MacDonald.

Beavers are among the largest living rodents in the world. They have thick fur, webbed feet and flattened, scale-covered tails. With powerful jaws and strong teeth, they fell trees in order to build homes and dams, often changing their environment in ways few other animals can. In fact, the idioms “busy as a beaver” and “eager beaver” are synonymous with being industrious and hardworking.
A great size to use a s a fidget toy! A maze is a path or collection of paths, typically from an entrance to a goal. The word is used to refer both to branching tour puzzles through which the solver must find a route, and to simpler non-branching patterns that lead unambiguously through a convoluted layout to a goal. The first recorded maze in history was the Egyptian Labyrinth. Herodotus, a Greek traveler and writer, visited the Egyptian Labyrinth in the 5th century, BC.
