Introducing the Bushwalk Bushtucker Carpet Game – an exciting and educational adventure for young explorers! This immersive children's carpet game takes little adventurers on a journey through the outback, where they'll discover the wonders of the Australian bush and its unique array of bush tucker treats.

By rolling the soft dice, children will explore this beautiful Aboriginal Art carpet game, catching, foraging and learning all about bush tucker. If they land on an animal's footprint, they get to track it and move up two spaces, but if the land on the snake, they will slither back!

This product includes the Aboriginal artist's certificate of authenticity for Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) accreditation.
