Our Continent Bags - Africa

Moving right along with my tour of our Continent Bags... next up, Africa!

Here's what's inside:
Book, maps, and cards.

Recipes and three part cards.

Music and artwork. The CD to the left is Putumayo's World Playground, and the CD on the right is a collection of songs by Uganda native, Geoffrey Oryema. It's a beautiful CD with a lot of depth. The artwork is from Google images.

Animals, three part cards, and memory game. The game is something simple I whipped up by putting matching sets of safari stickers on note cards.

Various Egypt items. All of the figurines, with the exception of the Ankh, come from this Toob, as did the information strip to the far left. The pyramid is my husband's (no idea where he got it from). I'm excited about the Hieroglyphic sheets (found on Google images) - I think James is going to love using the translator to read them.

Money, stamps, and stamper.

Miscellaneous souvenirs. The djembe and the bracelet were found at a local fair trade store, the necklace is made of paper beads by women in Uganda. The little thumb piano is from here and the pencil box is something I bought at Pier One almost 20 years ago!

Flags from Ghana, Madagascar, and Egypt.

We have those same Egyptian figurines. We splurged last year and bought my son the Pyramid from Playmobil and it has been worth every penny. He plays with it all the time and loves learning new things about Egypt and the Pharoahs
