SEA LIFE Melbourne is buzzing with excitement today as our toddler aged King Penguin chicks enjoyed their first day at Playgroup to launch the Easter school holiday activities!
20 lucky Playgroup Victoria participants hosted the first ever Penguin Playgroup. The toddlers took over the Penguin Playground for the morning to show the adorable penguin chicks how it was done.
The excited hosts watched on in amazement as the penguin chicks were weighed, measured and enriched with bubble play, all part of their Playgroup enrichment program. The special visitors then took their turn to play in the ice, blow bubbles and test their skills at several penguin themed games as part of the school holiday program.
This special event is just one of several held by Playgroup Victoria to celebrate National Playgroup Week, to find similar events and further details on Playgroup Victoria visit their website here.
The fun continues all school holidays at SEA LIFE Melbourne; waddle in for penguin themed playtime. Learn all there is to know about penguins at the interactive penguin discovery table, get in disguise with your own take-home penguin mask and ask all your penguin questions at the penguin presentations held throughout the day.
Penguin chicks Basil, E.J., Pan-Pan and Sybil are growing up so quickly, born weighing approximately 200 grams each, they now weigh over 10 kilograms. Thanks to their very healthy appetites all the chicks are bigger and fluffier then ever and growing up fast so get in quick to see them!
