#PLAYTIMEWITHOSKAR Challenge Prompt 2 :
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Week beginning Monday 10th May
On Saturday, he ate through one Vegemite sandwich, one strawberry, one mango, one piece of fairy bread, one cupcake, one slice of lamington, one meat pie with tomato sauce, one Bunnings snag, one banana AND one cup of orange juice.
That night he had a stomach ache!

#PLAYTIMEWITHOSKAR Challenge Prompt 3 :
Week beginning Monday 17th May
Where is your favourite picnic spot, and what are your favourite picnic snacks? Why not draw us a picture using your Oskar's Wooden Ark art materials? You could set up a picnic small world, enjoy a Teddy Bears' picnic in the garden with Erzi wooden play food, or fill your Olli Ella Piki Basket with snacks that you've prepared together as a family for a fun day out. The options are endless!
The winner of this week's prompt will receive the brand new Erzi Australia Assortment.

#PLAYTIMEWITHOSKAR Challenge Prompt 4 :
Week beginning Monday 24th May
This week is your chance to cook up a storm! What gourmet meals will you serve? Which ingredients will you use? We've found the Grapat mandala mushrooms to be a tasty* addition to a loose parts soup!
*Disclaimer: wooden toys are not for actual human consumption and we suggest adult supervision for little chefs who might think otherwise.
This week we're giving away an Erzi cookware set, because every little chef needs a good quality set of pots and pans!
