Around the world: Australia


January 26 was Australia day and since we have Australian blood in our family this week is about this beautiful country.

K for koala was added to the letter tree…



2 of our team members were sick and stayed at home for the first tree days of the week and it was really quiet in here Sad smile.

I made some eucalyptus yellow playdough for the sunshine of Australia and the leaves that the Koala eats of course plus the eucalyptus oil can’t hurt with everybody sick with a cold lol


We looked at aboriginal artist doing “dot paintings” and had a first try at it with bingo dabbers. Sorry I forgot to take a pic…

Then we made our very own cave painting just like we saw in the book. DSCF8030

The result were better than what I was hopping for SmileDSCF8025


Second try at dot painting with different color paint and Q-tips this time.

Here is an authentic aboriginal painting from my 5 year old.


Then there was this song about a certain bird…



This is what you can really hear in Australia when you wake up in the morning so we listened to it and to a few version of the kookaburra song as well. Once we knew the song we played pass the bird while singing it and who ever had the bird when the song stopped had to imitate the bird’s laugh lol. A noisy but fun game…

to be continued…
