How to be a Gumnut Baby

Inspired by the stories of the iconic Australian artist and children’s author, May Gibbs, our How to be a Gumnut Baby list celebrates the 100th anniversary of the iconic Gumnut Babies and May Gibbs’ most famous characters, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

The list captures the magic and whimsy of the Gumnut Baby adventures.  Delight in the adventures that have captivated generations and discover the magic of the Australian bush with your family with the How to be a Gumnut Baby list.  This resource contains an A4 activity list, as well as an A3 sized version you can have on display and bookmarks to print and use.

May Gibbs was responsible for creating a uniquely Australian folklore with local flora and fauna as the stars.  It promoted awareness of the environment and encouraged children to love and care for the bush in a creative and imaginative way.  Visit May Gibbs website for more magic and inspiration.
