On our first day, we read the letter from the package and explored everything included in the package. Here are pics of a few of the included things...
A pin which O(5) has claimed for herself...actually, E(2) gave it to her and said it was for her. E was busy claiming the whale sponge for herself. She called it a "srubber" (scrubber) and said she was going to "srub" with it in the shower. This is pretty funny since it's a tiny little whale sponge that is meant for stamping :)
We LOVE all of the natural items! E(2) picked up the black object (I'm not sure what it is) and said "It yooks (looks) just yike (like) a yiver (liver)!" She's right! It looks a lot like the liver on our human body parts puzzle (that has been very popular with the girls lately.
This a favorite item! A gourd, tea, and a special straw to drink the tea.
The girls love the flag, and I've had O tell me how the Argentinian flag is different from the American flag.
We read this story, and I put the puzzle together for the girls. (I'm enjoying this as much as they are!)
Tiny playing cards. O says they are the perfect size for her American Girl doll, Kaya.
We've really enjoyed looking at the money, and O was THRILLED with the tiny flags! She said "they must have known that we have mini American girl dolls because they sent flags just for them!"
The girls were excited to color their Argentinian coloring sheets. I'd love to print more Argentinian coloring sheets, so if anyone knows of a good website, please let me know!
Pictures and descriptions of Argentinan food. I'm hoping to cook at least one Argentinian food each week that we study this country...any recommendations???
The girls favorite part of the package was the candy!!!
There were lots of other things that I haven't taken pics of yet. I'll be writing several more posts throughout the month about our Argentinian activities.
Thank you SO much to Maria Elena and her kids for putting together this fantastic Argentinian package!
