Last week, our first cultural exchange parcel arrived, to great excitement. This parcel was from Hawaii.
There was a shell necklace and palm tree keyring. I have a little daughter who has decided that she rather likes the necklace!
This has been a great way to learn about Hawaii and a way to talk about the shape of the world and how Hawaii is sometimes on one side of the map and sometimes on the other but really in the same place. The fact that it is a US state isn't immediately obvious but when we looked at the map, we wondered whether our parcel had gone via the mainland US or straight here.
Thank you to Rachel at Little Red Farm for arranging the exchange and of course, to the kind family in Hawaii who sent us such an exciting parcel.
