Our first parcel has arrived as part of the worldwide culture swap that we’ve taken part in. It has come all the way across the world from the Australian family.
The monsters got very excited, although I have to admit they found the bubble wrap the most exciting part of the contents!
Inside the box was a jar of vegemite, a money tin with a picture of an Aussie dollar on it, an Australia boomerang magnet and lots of details about the items and the country.
The magnet was decorated with an aboriginal style dot pattern. I thought this would be an interesting craft activity for The Limpet so we started researching aboriginal artwork on Google. I thought it would be interesting to do our artwork on some rocks we had collected from the beach. I set some paints out with a cotton wool bub in each and The Limpet got to work.
Her dots soon developed into swirls and squiggles so I thought I’d try my hand at some dot painting too.
