We recently participated in another Culture Swap. We have participated in a few (both out of country and in the United States). They are lots of fun, and a great way to get items for our Continent Boxes!!
Here is what we recently received:
I will warn, it can get pricey…especially shipping items overseas. I typically use a small flat rate box and put as much in as I can fit. (Items in Hawaii are expensive too, especially b/c most are ‘tourist’ items). I typically send, pencils, aloha shirt shaped notepads, macadamia nut candy, American flag, some American change, key chains, post cards, a book, shell lei, piece of volcano rock, piece of coral. I have also made printable materials about Hawaii that I share.
Our boxes are a constant work in progress, we are continual adding to them. They are a great way for my kids to explore other countries/cultures.
