Truly a Diverse America---All Cultures Welcome! My holiday ...

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. Lots of photos of this fun project on my website www.poppiesandthistle.com
