Gumnuts, Sleepover, Sunflower Challenge, Yarn Art Trail

We have had lots of fun at Gumnuts tonight! 

We all had a go at lighting a candle with a match.  It was very exciting and the Gumnuts would probably like to practice this at home- please remind them that it is ONLY with a grown up next to them.

Next week I won’t be at Gumnuts, so the Gumnut patrol will be joining with the Juniors. This will be great practice for when they turn 7 and get to go up to Junior Guides.  

The following week – the 12th September is our special person night. It would be great if they could bring a special grown up to be a Gumnut for a night. 

Gumnuts are welcome to come to the Sunflower Sleepover on Saturday the 16th of September for as much or as little time as they are able to. Jasmine and I will be there all night.
