Ways to Play and Learn About Australia
We loved learning about Australia so much for Project Around the World, that we did a few extra projects we found on other blogs. Luckily, there are a ton of great crafts, activities, and recipes that you can do with your kids for at at-home exploration of Australia.
Here are some of the best I found:
Take a virtual trip:
Learn how to draw a kangaroo. We used this tutorial from Art Projects for Kids to help us.
Create an Australian flag. Danya Banya has a fun version for your kids to make.
Make the Sydney Opera House out of paper plates using this simple tutorial from Danya Banya.
Explore Australia through smell with some Lemon and Eucalyptus no-cook play dough from One Perfect Day.
Explore the Aboriginal culture:
Make Aboriginal clapping sticks with Laughing Kids Learn.
Use dot art on rocks with this fun project from Artsy Craftsy Mom.
We also explored Aboriginal dot art with this fun project.
Explore Australia through food:
Make Australian Damper Bread with Laughing Kids Learn.
Anzac Biscuits are a popular treat. Danya Banya shows you how to make them.
Lamingtons are another popular sweet treat. Create-Celebrate-Explore has an easy recipe for you to try.
Do you have any fun ideas we should try?
