When you are in school, hopefully you have enough things in your classroom to get creative with. In Lesotho, there are not always enough materials and toys for the students to use, so they make their own.
Here, class 5 in St Peter’s are using homemade paint and sticks to paint with, as we can’t buy paint or brushes in Mokhotlong. We made the paint from flour, water and food colouring. It worked quite well.

In the playground, the children make their own toys too. One child made this push-along toy car from mud, stones and reeds; and these children are playing with a football made from carrier bags.
