Ode to a Clay Cow

In rural Swaziland, sometimes there's just not much to do. While in Swaziland for short term missions in 2006 and 2007, we can remember being amazed by the ingenuity the kids displayed! Whether it was forming a car out of old wire fencing, sliding down a smooth rock into the river, or molding cows out of mud, the kids
always had creative ideas for play.

This video, shot by Aaron Kopp (son of Peter and Mary Jean, who we'll be serving alongside), features a common form of play for Swazi children. One of the boys, Sifiso (in pink and white striped shirt), spent countless hours building miniature cows, calves, bulls,
ranches, and homesteads out of mud.
