5. Becky's Place, posts videos of the miniature horses interacting with each other and owner Doreen. Videos are shared at 9am weekdays.

These were originally live-streamed, but are now pre-recorded due to poor internet connection. To foster interaction, families can request "shout outs" to their children, along with a special message (birthdays, lost a tooth, slept all night etc). Visit their page for details.

6. Australian Reptile Park offers live streams of animal feeding, play and general interaction 2pm weekdays.

A series of educational videos, "Animal Tales with Tim Faulkner" are also posted at 10am weekdays. Visit their page for the upcoming week's schedule.

Sports and Skills Development

7. Dubbed the "nation's PE teacher" during lockdown, children (and parents) can enjoy fun and interactive workouts with PE Joe. Tune in 9am weekdays for live physical fitness videos.

8. Holt Bolt hosts live sessions of Physical Education and Core Exercises for children. These begin at 11am Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

9. Rugby Bricks regularly posts exercise and skill development videos for children and adults. These activities require only minimal space and a ball (some may require the assistance of another person). Viewers are encouraged to send in their own photographs and videos.
