We are participating in a cultural exchange sponsored by Little Red Farm. The exchange is a great way to introduce the kids to other cultures and also learn a little bit of Geography. We sent packages to Australia, South Africa, and to Iowa, USA. Below is a picture of things we included in the package. I might post a detailed description of it later, once the exchange is over.
My kids got really excited when we received our first package from Australia!
They opened the package and here is what they saw:
A boomerang magnet,
Australian chocolate and, below, a small Australian rodent (I’m still trying to figure out what animal this is);
We also got a book, coloring pages, a pencil, some brochures, flag stickers, an animal mask, and a letter with more information about Australia.
What a nice way to get in touch with people from all over the world! It was a really worthy experience for all of us. We are still waiting to receive the other packages, and I’ll certainly post about them also. If you would like to join the cultural exchange, I believe you can still sign up. Just click on the Little Red Farm link above for more information.
An update on our cultural exchange
Unfortunately, we only received this package from Australia. We never heard back from the family from South Africa, and the US family emailed me back saying they were sending the package within the next few days, but they never did. So, keep in mind that not everyone who decides to participate in this exchange honors their word. That’s a risk you’ll have to take. I wish you good luck!
