We are excited to once again be offering 15,000 Children’s Day bags, including resources and activities for pre-school age children, to communities across Australia.
The Children’s Day bag has a drawing called Taungurung Bubup by Annette Sax. It is of a baby wrapped in a possum skin cloak in a coolamon – a traditional carrying vessel. A coolamon is shaped like a canoe as the baby is carried on its journey of life. Traditionally coolamons were used to cradle babies, carry water, fruits or nuts, to separate grains, and protect from the rain.
2021 bag sales will be available soon at the usual price of $6 per bag, for delivery from late June. Due to high demand, we are offering pre-orders to SNAICC Members first before making them available to all supporters. If you’re interested in becoming a member, please go to SNAICC Membership.
In addition to items supplied in these bags, you can also find more fun Activities
online. All Children's Day resources
can be accessed on the website. We'd prefer that families and communities purchase products from SNAICC rather than external organisations marketing Children's Day material that is not sanctioned by SNAICC, to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and communities benefit.
