As Play School marks it's 50th year entertaining Australian children by lessons on how to make creative stuff from  toilet paper rolls and pipe cleaners, the program celebrates by having a month long series hosted by a variety of celebrities and personalities.

From SBS' Lee Lin Chin to Kate Cebrano, this month Play School invites a range of Australian talent to come and play. 

One of the first appearances for this anniversary special is killer Kookaburra impersonator and mosquito-bitten improv actor, Adam Goodes. Oh, and former Sydney Swans player, activist and the 2014 Australian of the Year. 


Forget that Internet gif of Shek's Puss-In-Boots all big eyed and tearing up, there's a new standard of heart-melting; Adam Goodes reading 'Counting Aussie Animals in my Backyard' to Slush the pig.

Watch Adam is his element as a children's entertainer at ABC iView.
