Homeschool Activity: Traveling the World Indoors

Hello everybody!  It has been awhile since I have written one of these, but this is surely one that I have been looking forward to!  This summer has been so busy with school, dance recitals, and the sort.  However, now that school has officially started, it is time to get back into our normal routines.  Although, I did have fun with this homeschool activity.  It let us travel the world indoors and it was a lot of fun for both my daughter and me and I cannot wait to share it with you all!

This activity is through Little Passports.  Little Passports is a subscription box that is filled with wonder and let’s you travel the U.S., the world, and science with one little box.  Today, for this activity, we are visiting Australia.  I have always wanted to go Australia to see the sites and animals, but drawing one is also fun too.  We learned all about the red kangaroo through Little Passports.  We got the inside scoop on how cool these animals were while drawing and hopping around like a kangaroo.

Did you know that a red kangaroo can jump 25 feet in ONE leap??  That is insanely high and it is amazing!  They also reach up to speeds of 35 MPH and they have the strongest legs to fend off any predators.  It’s always amazing to me to read about these animals and see their strengths.  I, for one, am still working on my strength, through my workouts, so I can hope that my legs will one day be as strong as a kangaroo’s.  

Anyway, this activity shows you step by step on how to draw one of these amazing kangaroos.  They also show the pictures of where each drawing step is supposed to go.  I will say that I am not the best artist, but I think I did a pretty good job with this activity.  My daughter, on the other hand, probably beat me in our art contest because she is the better artist.  After we drew the kangaroo, we learned all about Australia (via Google Maps) and pretended that we went there on a vacation.  

We went to the markets, the beach, the zoo (where I was the kangaroo), and we had a dance party.  It was an amazing day vacation and we learned a lot.  I would really like to thank Little Passports for this activity and helping me to spend a day being a kangaroo in Australia with my little.  If you or your little would like to learn more or to draw a red kangaroo, I am sharing the FREE kangaroo drawing worksheet and posting the link here for Little Passports:

I hope you all have enjoyed reading!  This activity is so much fun and I am so glad that I was able to share with you all about this cute little activity.  It really helped us to learn about a new country in the world and it all happened indoors.  As always, I hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you in the next post!
