Activities, Crafts, Recipes, and More!
The perfect new book to celebrate the fascinating holiday of Kwanzaa! If you don't know anything about this ancient traditional holiday from Africa then here is your chance to learn. Kids will find out about the unique culture and ritual involved.
Fascinating did-you-know-factS from Kwanzaa Activities, Crafts, Recipes, and More: Kwanzaa gifts, called zawadi (zah-wah-dee), are made by hand. No matter which holiday you celebrate, you can now make them, too!
Gleaming candles in the kinara, brightly wrapped zawadi, waving benderas, the scent of a delicious karamu being prepared, the sounds of Swahili... these are some of my favorite sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Kwanzaa.
This book is packed with wonderful stories, interesting facts, great crafts, and lots more for you to enjoy during the Kwanzaa season (or any time you just WANT it to be Kwanzaa!). I've included games, songs, puzzles, trivia, projects, recipes, and even a family Kwanzaa newsletter!
Remember, when it comes to celebrating Kwanzaa with your loved ones, a truly creative mind can always come up with endless ideas! This special season is celebrated by children all around the world from Africa to Alaska. So whether you are building a sandcastle or a snowman this December, I hope this activity book helps you learn more about this special holiday.
Happy Kwanzaa!
Carole Marsh & the Gallopade Gang
