“NAIDOC is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields.” (http://www.naidoc.org.au/)
This past week has been NAIDOC week and Master C has been doing lots of relevant activities at school. He came home with many masterpieces but the favourite of all the kids was a boomerang that he had dot painted. Both Master C and Master E have requested to make their own at home out of cardboard (so they last longer).
I found a template of a boomerang from a google search and gave them cotton buds to use instead of a paint brush. The cotton buds made great dots and are a bit trickier to hold, good for developing fine motor skills. Dots weren’t popular with the kids but they still look great.
