Cultural Exchange - USA: Ohio

As I've mentioned here before, I am participating in a Cultural Exchange.  You can read about what we sent the other families here.  One of the first packages we received was from this lovely family from Ohio.  The amount of thought and effort they have put into creating this package is just amazing.  Everything was neatly packaged in a nice box, I can only imagine what it would have cost them to ship it internationally!

We received this nice letter with tons of information about the life of kids here in the United States and about the things they do in Ohio.  It also had a nice picture of the family. Here is a look at a page from their letter.

They had included a map of the United States and some coloring sheets.

They had included some Red Carnations and a Cardinal, the State flower and bird of Ohio.  What an amazing idea!  Also included were a snowman and a bale of hay.

More stuff related to the States.

Craft items, rainbow crayons and fall leaves.

US Flag and stickers.  A wooden Star shape for craft work.

Monarch Butterfly, more stickers, watermelon sucker, start shaped silly bands and a couple of american pencils!

Amish County travel brochure and a beautiful postcard if Amish children.  My daughter loves this picture and this has led so many wonderful conversations about the Amish!

Some fun activity books and Star shaped notepads.

A lovely American basket that will be put to so much use in our school room!

Many thanks for the family that sent this to us! I can't even begin to imagine the amount of patience and effort that was needed to put this thorough package together!  We received this package first and this inspired so much of what we put together for this exchange.  We feel so blessed to be participating!
