More Ideas for African Activities
Try making a ring pad to carry objects on your head. In Africa these are
used to carry water in pots or firewood.
Find out about different styles of housing in Africa - for example, a Masai
hut or a Rondavel. The styles of the different huts depend on the different
tribes. Can you make a model of an African village?
Different tribes have their own style of face or body painting. Find out
why and when different tribes paint their bodies. Then, make your own paints
and design a pattern for your 'tribe'.
Face and Body Painting
If you have access to the Junior Badge book (GSUSA), 1990 edition, there
are instructions for making a West African rhythm instrument on page 80.
