Go the other way.

Luckily for the little Taniwha the boy who was watering the mud hole had noticed she was trying to get into the garden. He very kindly said "You have to go around the other way."

Keep visiting to see what other adventures the little Taniwha will get into.

A new bridge

But before the little Taniwha could go much further she came across some children playing in the mud beside a bridge. The children were so busy they didn't even notice the little Taniwha and there was no room for her to cross over the bridge.


The little taniwha stopped crying and looked up where she saw the most beautiful tree. It was all pink.

"How beautiful." she said "Maybe I could stay here." "Lets see what else is in this garden."

Mrs Gnome

Grumpy Mrs Gnome heard the little Taniwha wailing and told her to "Shhhhhhh!" "Go away. You're making too much noise." Mrs Gnome said.

But where could the Little Taniwha go?

What next?

As she moved around the garden she found more rope lines. She didn't play there either. It was too scary!

"Owwh. I just want to find a safe and quiet place to play!" she cried.


As the Taniwha moved around the garden she discovered a big pile of tyres.

She didn't play there.

A helping hand

Both Joshuas heard the taniwhas shouts and ran to help her. "Thanks ." she said and carried on her journey.


She fell off the rope. "Oh HELP." she wailed "This isn't safe." So she started to look for somewhere else to play.

Reshaping the garden

The little taniwha found a big play space surrounded by rope. She started to balance on the rope and sang, "One little elephant balancing step by step on a piece of string." "This is fun" she said, until...

Developing a new playscape

Once upon a time at Mount Plunket Preschool our garden looked like this. In this garden lived a tiny and very unhappy Taniwha.

The Taniwha wanted to find a new home. "This place is a mess. There's nothing to do!" she moaned.
