What you need:

  • Micador Super Modeling Clay (See activity ‘Super Modeling Clay Native Animals – Our Australian Friends’)
  • Micador Quicksand
  • Micador Stuff For Painting
  • Micador Lotus Palette
  • Micador Acrylic Paint
  • Cardboard Box
  • Scissors
  • Packing Tape
Step

Step 1: Prep your box!

Make your box your own and customise it! Cut away any unwanted bits or add in your own i.e shelves, peep holes etc. Sketch out your scene so your painting areas are clear.
Step

Step 2: Paint your scene!

Using Micador Acrylic Paint and Micador Stuff For Painting, create your Australian Outback scene. We used the base of Ayres Rock for our inspiration! The round stamper is perfect to use to create treetops and the foam brush is good to cover those large spaces.
Step

Step 3: Add some sand

Spread some Micador Quicksand to the bottom for a 3D effect! Use tape to cover up any holes around your box to ensure the sand stays in. (Quicksand is a good alternative to real sand as it is low mess and reusable.) To avoid sand falling out the front, attach a small guard from your left over cardboard to the front using packing tape.

Step 4: Give Cory the Koala something to eat!

Place your animals in the scene and then go outside and gather some nature and native Australian flora like gum tree leaves for Cory the Koala to snack on!
