Lekgapo is an art form practiced by the indigenous women of Botswana. They use mud mixed with cow dung and decorate the outside of their homes with it. These designs are so nice that my littles and I decided to try to recreate this concept. We opted to leave out the poo, and actually, we also opted to leave out the mud. We had some air dry clay left over from this Peruvian project that we did, so we used that.

With our final craft complete, it is time to start planning our end of the tour dinner. I'll be sharing that with you next week.
