Boomerang painting! January 10th

Last week, we gathered outside the student lounge for our Thursday activity – Boomerang painting! 🙂

img_0251

The sun was shining here in Byron Bay so we set up the tables outside, making sure to cover everything in newspaper as we were using acrylic paint. I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

Everyone found the painting to be a very relaxing activity! Check them out as they worked on their masterpieces 😀

Morning Brigadeiro making! January 3rd

This morning we had great fun in the kitchen making Brigadeiros! They are a Brazilian sweet – a real favourite and a traditional birthday treat seen in Brazil.

IMG_0028.jpg

Brigadeiros are typically small, bite-size treats, made from just a few simple ingredients: condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter – all individually hand rolled and covered with chocolate sprinkles and nuts.

IMG_0031

We had s small group today as it’s our first week back after the Christmas holidays. Together with Elena and Marcia, we cooked up a storm! We started out by combining the condensed milk with the cocoa and butter. This had to be stirred over a medium heat for a long time – stirring it constantly to ensure it did not burn. When you drag the spoon through the mixture and the space is visible on the bottom of the pan for a few seconds, that’s how you know it is thick enough. We then popped the mixture into a bowl in the fridge to cool for a few minutes. It was quite a lot of stirring so the girls took turns and it gave us plenty of time to chat about our Christmas holidays and new year celebrations! 😀

The fun part was then turning the mixture into the brigadeiros! We used a selection of nuts, coconut and sprinkles for our toppings. Check out the results! Delicious 🙂

Christmas Decoration Making! (morning). 19 December

We’re getting into the festive spirit here in Lexis Byron Bay this week with some Christmas-themed activities. Today’s was Christmas Decoration Making! 

IMG_9732

We set out to make a beautiful decoration for the tree, which required cardboard, wool, fancy paper, scissors, glue and straight pins. We also had some optional extra bits like wood beads, silver beads and wire.

IMG_E9730

We started out by gluing our two cardboard squares together. The next step was to stick pins in all the corners, followed by wrapping the wool around each of the pins.

You repeat the steps, moving inwards until all the corners of the card are covered and you end up with a beautiful star shape!

Check out some of the beautiful decorations made by Islania and Orla!

The countdown to Santa’s arrival is on! Is your Christmas tree up yet? 🙂

Morning Dreamcatcher Making! 12 December

On Wednesday we made everyone’s favourite – Dreamcatchers!

 

We started off with a wire ring, which we had to wrap, using various bits and pieces from our large box of materials, threads, wools and twine.

The next step then was to make the web part of the dreamcatcher. We watched a video and then I showed them in more detail, how to go about making their own. It looks a bit tricky but is surprisingly easy once you get into it. It is also very therapeutic! 🙂

Then it was time to add some embellishments to our webs. We had lots of beautiful bits and bobs – like feathers, beads, shells…

I was very impressed with the final results!
