Cultural Exchange package - England


Finally I managed to send out all of my Cultural Exchange packages!  I could easily have kept going finding more and more things but at some point I just had to stop.

So for those who cannot wait to receive their package or for those just interested in what I sent here is a little summary......
  • A Union Jack flag
  • A postcard from London
  • A list of what is in the package 
  • A letter and some printables
  • A crown to decorate (to represent the British Monarchy)
  • Some real coins
  • Some plastic banknotes
  • Chocolate coins, chocolate Santa's and a candy cane
  • A Christmas card
  • A football pencil and rubber
  • An Eiffel Tower .....WHAT???...yes I know but at the moment we are in Paris so I thought I would include one
  • London pin badge
  • Old fashioned playing cards
  • Union Jack pencil

I also added a few crafts to the packages.  The first is an explanation of how to make a friendship bracelet (which are popular amongst English school children).

And a craft project that I made up which is to make a royal Mail post box from a toilet roll tube.  I was so happy with how this tutorial turned out that I will be adding it to this site some time in the new year.

A point I should make is that the packages may vary slightly so don't be alarmed if you got something else instead of what I have shown here.  Also,  I think that I may have wrapped up my 2.5mm crochet hook in one of the packages which you might be a bit confused about if you find it.  If it's in your package just tell the children that it's to represent the British love of hobbies!

If you like the look of this package (or any of the other ones that I have shown on my blog) and are interested in joining next year you can sign up here to receive 5 packages from around the world.

If you want to see what other people have been sending each other check out my Facebook page.

And finally just to add to those who will receive this package - I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together!  If you have any questions about England just leave them in the comment.

  1. These look fantastic! We've had houseguests as well, and the baby has stomach flu AND an ear infection, so in the madness I'm afraid that I completley forgot to take photos of the packages we sent out. Oops! Hopefully one of the recipients will be nice enough to take pictures of it for me :)
