What Peenie Wallies do
They take part in all sorts of activities. In whatever they do, they explore, share and discover.
They play games, paint and make things, listen to stories, sing songs, learn about nature and their environment and do many more activities both in and out of doors.
They have many fun adventures and at the same time learn to be kind and helpful.
The Peenie Wallie Trips
The girls have two tasks set in each of the eight points. They have to complete a total of 12 tasks, with at least one from each of the eight points, in each of the journeys they travel. Each trip takes approximately a year to complete. The first trip is to the Moon, followed by a trip to the Sun, and finally a trip to the Stars.
