One of these days I may actually make it to Australia (and Germany!). I’ve had friends from Australia. I’ve taught a 4 week long Australia Unit in public school. But nothing compares to visiting.

I guess until I have the money and time to go, I’ll at least expose the kids to some of the neat cultural aspects of that fascinating continent.

We made didgeridoos! We were finishing up our study of the continents and I had saved Australia until the end.

What is a didgeridoo, you ask? Listen to one HERE.

Materials needed: a long tube, washable paint, cardstock

  1. We went there on our honeymoon …..hope to go back soon…..its beautiful…also on your way you would want to slop at new Zealand ….c

  2. You can also use these tubes to make Rain Sticks. Just take the cardboard tube and have the kids stick tacks or nails through the outside of the tube so that the points are inside the tubes. Then seal one end up by cutting a circle of card stock and gluing it to one end, you can use duct tape to seal it to the tube. Then fill the tube with rice (for a louder sound put a few dried beans in as well). Then seal the open end the same way you did the other. You can use wrapping paper, or decoupage or a variety of things to let them decorate the outside of the tube. These are used in a variety of countries to make a sound like rain. I learned about them when working with a praise team at church and made them with my older daughters when we were studying different South American countries. I know they are also used by different tribes in Africa, and in other countries with tropical climates. They make the sound of rain when the rice is allowed to slowly go down the tube as it hits the nails inside. You just slowly lean the tube from side to side. If you shake it you get more of a maracca sound.
