This fun download comes with five activities (12 pages) to help introduce your kids to Kwanzaa and the symbols associated with it.
– Spin the Wheel. This fun wheel activity is easy to set up and links via QR code to my blog where your children can find more in depth discussions to answer specific questions about Africa in one place, including: videos, pictures, links to websites, and even a really fun youtube series featuring some of the Swahili language! (Note: Kwanzaa is an African-AMERICAN holiday, but it’s purpose is to help build up the African-American community with the good traits inherited from African ancestors.)
– Mishumaa Saba. Learn what the three colors and seven candles of kwanzaa mean before filling in the crossword puzzle and coloring in the missing candles.
-Mkeka. The placemat is an important symbol at Kwanzaa. Laminate this placemat for your dinner table, or follow instructions to make your own!
– Corn is another important part of the festivities. Make your way through this corn maze for a fun, no-prep activity!
– Put together this Kwanzaa booklet to learn it all – the seven symbols with their Swahili-based names, the colors, the principles, and what they all represent!
