DLTK's Crafts for Kids


Australian Themed Books 

One of our viewers had some great suggestions for Australian themed books that I thought we should share.

Have you seen the book "Wombat Stew" written by Marcia K.  Vaughan.  I get my kindergarten children to make costumes for the animals, eg, ears for the wombat, tail for the fox and they make all the ingredients to go into the stew. The children love this. Another great book is "Possum Magic" by Mem Fox. This is very Australian and Australian kindergarten children love it."

Thanks for sharing these ideas Nicola!
