Thank-you SO MUCH for sharing your ANZAC Day Scavenger Hunt printable!!! I am writing from Mississauga, Canada where we are homeschooling our 3 boys (for a little over 1 year now; due to the pandemic…we are in our 3rd lockdown!). I’m Canadian and my husband is Australian – I am trying to include some Australian social studies in our homeschool learning. The different activity sheet is such a great idea – and I’m so pleased that all 3 boys will be able to participate (they are 4, 6 and 9 years old). I also downloaded your Kiwi Bird / Easter Egg resource – I’m sure we will use this soon; we have a few kiwi books and the boys are always so curious about animals. Anyways…this is a long note to say THANK-YOU!!!
Ohh my goodness – you’re so welcome! We’ve been watching the pandemic unfold from our little corner of the world and really feel for all you parents at home with young kids!! Please pass on a ‘G’day’ to your hubby – we love our neighbours over the ditch 😀 Thanks for popping by!
