I came up with this idea for an heirloom child’s craft the other day, because I volunteered to do a craft at my first grader’s holiday party next week. I love short garlands for decorations, and I decided to make these multi-cultural pennant garlands as a child’s craft kit. The kids have spent the last month at school focused on a multi-cultural theme, where they have learned about all kinds of holiday traditions from different cultures. We are blessed to have a truly diverse class of 6 and 7 year olds, coming from many different religious and family backgrounds. It’s pretty cool, and very American, I must add! We love and cherish all cultures and religious backgrounds in America. The kids “sew” the yarn through the eyelet holes and add beads.
