Children will learn about the native inspired friends, toys, and games that Aboriginal children made and played. A fun opportunity to look at how traditional childhood is not that much different to modern childhood. Each program offers one presenter face to face guiding children and educators to investigate toys and games. Educators begin to understand how to look for opportunities to embed Aboriginal perspectives into their service. All materials included.
Single session: Basic introduction to traditional toys and games with practical activity to either learn a game OR make a toy.
Three-session program: Introduction to traditional toys and games delivered over 3 sessions. Each session will focus on making a keepsake toy or learning a traditional game.
Kaikiliko Program: An in-depth investigation into the traditional toys and games of Aboriginal children, delivered over 6-10 weeks. Each session will focus on making a keepsake toy or leaning a traditional game. The service will get a special reading and copy of Speaking in Colour founder Cherie Johnson’s children’s book entitled Guuluuguu Gimbaijar and a booklet of some traditional Aboriginal games.
‘Kaikiliko is an Awabakal work meaning play’.
