Arts & Crafts:

Aboriginal Dot Painting is a lovely art activity - takes focus and concentration but very effective. I love this idea of creating it on stones!
Australian aboriginal art has been around for many years. Aboriginal rock paintings are a fun way and tell the stories of the Autralian continent from Artsy Crafts Mom

These newspaper and felt Koalas are so effective!

Get out the pastels or wax crayons with some black sugar paper to create some Aboriginal style snake art.
My Aboriginal snake drawing was inspired from Australia, where there are Aborigines who live today as they did thousands of years ago.
