South Africa - Worldwide Culture Swap package

Thanks to Wendy from South Africa for linking up her South African package post so that we can all see what was sent as part of the Worldwide Culture Swap.

Wendy writes:

The exchange aims to share information with a group of other families around the world about the country in which we live. They get a feel for our country and culture, and we get a feel for theirs....

A different way of learning about other places and the added anticipation of receiving a package from another country makes it really exciting!
So here is what we are sending out to USA, UK, Spain and Canada.....
During read aloud time, K has been busy making these cute, colourful felt elephants to put into each pack. I love her creativity and choice of colours. When putting the packs together, she chose which elephant was going to which country.

My sweet sister suggested adding a recipe from SA, so we chose Bobotie, a good old South African traditional recipe. This afternoon K helped me to make up the spice packs to go with the recipes; one for the mince mixture and one for the yellow rice with raisins that is usually eaten with Bobotie.

Read the rest of Wendy's post about what her family included in their package here.
