We are wrapping up this week by learning about an African culture holiday called Kwanzaa. New holiday vocabulary was introduced: kinara, Africa, and Unity Cup. For our drama play, we added the kinara so the children could pretend to light them!
Our art centers were certainly fun as we created bracelets out of Kwanzaa colors: red, green, and black! We also had the children paint a Kwanzaa flag at the easel center. A colorful kinara was also created out of the children’s painted handprints!
Stay tuned for more pictures! Happy Kwanzaa!
