As you’re watching the video ask your child to discuss what they see…
- How does it looks similar and different to where you live or places you’ve visited?
- What types of land forms do you see?
- Did you see any animals? Which ones?
- Where there any special buildings you saw? I wonder what they are called?
- Did the people have special clothing?
- Did you learn something new about Sweden?
- What was your favorite?
You can keep track of their responses inside their printed suitcase. As they learn about Sweden have them illustrate the outside of the suitcase with those facts.

Watercolor Fun with Sweden
We created a suitcase full of facts and fun as we learned about Sweden this week. My daughter enjoyed using her Watercolors to paint the flag of Sweden blue and yellow. She also made her very own Dala Horse. You could use crayons, markers or colored pencils to create these activities too. To extend her learning, she used the Dala Horse and the Swedish Paper Doll during playtime too. We even made a special Flag of Sweden for our traveling Bear to hold by cutting blue and yellow paper.
I’ve done the research for you about Sweden and saved you some time. Here are the printable’s, Links included, that we used to learn about Sweden!
