Pinterest Resources of the Week: Kwanzaa
Christmas-time is a wonderful time of year, but it is also a time for other celebrations as well., Rather than lumping all of the holidays into a mush of “Holiday” celebrations that lose the essence of each individual traditions, how about celebrating diversity with some activities for the other holidays celebrated this time of year? We featured a whole bunch of Hanukkah Activities and our Hanukkah Pinboard earlier this month. Lets learn about Kwanza, this week!
Kwanzaa starts December 26th. The holiday was created during the 1960s, to brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. While not celebrated universally by African Americans, it is quite important to many families, and conveys a wonderful message that can remind all our kiddos that they are citizens of not just our country, but of the world.
Here are some of our favorite activities for Kwanzaa from our Kwanzaa Pinboard that we have not featured elsewhere:
