I had an ambitious plan; 10 Australia Day crafts before 26 January. And now I found that this weekend it is Australia Day already. So I failed to share all the ideas I had with you, but I will share some more things we made the past couple of weeks,
These Australian stars could be an alternative on the wands we made earlier. Or just decorate the space where you are celebrating.They are so easy to make, even my not 2-year-old had a blast putting the stars and the paint in the salad spinner and spinning it.
The emblem of Australia carries a kangaroo and an emu. I thought it appropriate to include them in our Australia Day crafts. We made a cute Emu mask and Kangaroo mask. I gave the girls yellow/gold and green materials to decorate. Just yellow was used….. the girls didn’t like the green.
There is another national symbol, the national flower; a Waratah. This was a hard one, it is a beautiful flower. Ellen named the flower we made the beautiful pink flower as she didn’t dare to pronounce or believe it was named a Waratah.
Or you can always look at a craft Ellen and I did last year; making flip flops. Every Australian owns a pair.
Happy crafting Australia Day
