Mermaids` Makings

Cultural Exchange- USA, Oklahoma

This interesting package  came from  Oklahoma, USA.

We have been playing the “Crazy Eight” game every evening now  :) I did not know this card game before.

We also got some leaflets, postcards and an “All Around America” book which is really very good. It gives a brief introduction to all the States in the US. We learned that more than 50 languages are spoken in the state of Oklahoma. There are 55 distinct Indian tribes that make their state their home, and each of these tribes has its own language or dialect. Oklahoma is a word that was made up by the native American missionary Allen Wright. He combined two Choctaw words, “ukla” meaning person and “huma” meaning red.. so  Oklahoma means “red person”. Oklahoma`s nickname is “The Sooner State”. “Sooners” was the term given to the early settlers of what is now Oaklahoma.

We found some little  figurines and the teepee craft in the package. We will be making a little indian playscene using them. And also the jigsaw was fun to put together. My daughter is very much into maps and geography, so  it was a perfect activity for her.

She also loved all these rainbow- cloud- sun stickers.. well apart from two… the ones with sad faces.. I guess I can keep these two then :)

We also got a borax slime making kit- it was fun! I had read a lot about it on the net but never got round to doing it. So now we did and we loved it!

The fridge magnet found its place on the fridge and American flag together with a pinwheel found a place amongst the other flags we have received.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
