It was a nice sunny day and Nanna decided to take a walk around the garden and enjoy the sunshine.
So she put on her gumboots and picked up her camera in case she saw any birds and pretty flowers.
First she saw ONE cheeky cockatoo eating the macadamia nuts.
She chased the cockatoo away and then said hello to the TWO guinea pigs, Robert and Pops while they were having lunch.
They asked her if she could tell the THREE kookaburras in the pine tree next door to quieten down as they were not happy with all the noise they were making. Can you find them?
She thought she would see if there were any ripe tamarillos and found FOUR which were not quite ready to pick yet.
Nanna noticed that some of the pegs had fallen on the grass so picked up FIVE of them and put them back in the peg basket. Do they all look the same?
Then she wandered over to the cabbage patch where the calendulas were growing and saw SIX of them growing. One of them is not the same as the others. Which one is it and what colour is it?
Nannu has lots of chillies growing so Nanna picked SEVEN of them to bring inside to the kitchen. They are very, very hot.
She walked down the back where there are nasturtiums growing in the compost heap. They are very pretty and Nanna counted EIGHT flowers. Can you count them and how many orange ones are there?
There aren't many flowers in the garden at the moment but the lavender bush is looking very pretty so Nanna picked NINE stems to put in a vase as they smell very nice.
Before she went back inside she found a lot of macadamia nuts that the naughty cockatoos had knocked to the ground when they were having morning tea. So Nanna picked up TEN of them.
Then she sat down and had a cup of coffee and thought about her little grandchildren so far away and looked forward to their next visit when she could take them for a walk around the garden and ask them what they could see.
If there are any Aussie grandparents reading this who have their grandchildren living nearby and would like to help them with their alphabet, numbers, colours etc., you can download worksheets from KidzCopy. On that page you can find the fonts that are taught in each Australian state and it looks as though there also worksheets for those in the US.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
