Tinga Tinga Giraffe

Ok, so here's one of my issues with Dar life. We have no Dollar Store, or Michaels, where we can get some great crafting ideas. And some great ideas require supplies you can't always get here. But then my mate, Janne, had a brilliant idea! 

There are some amazing Tinga Tinga painters here, and one thing they make, are these animal carvings with their unique tinga tinga design. So Janne went to visit one, and asked if she could buy a couple of their fish, unpainted. After recovering from the shock, they sold her a few which she brought home and had the kids paint, and then decorate with feathers and glue.

Following in her steps, I brought home a giraffe.......

...... and let Ethan go wild.




He's very proud of his giraffe!
