10 Crafts from Around the World

I have started a new feature here on In The Playroom where each week I’ll be featuring a blogger and showcasing some of their great posts for you to check out. I have an amazing blog for you this first week – Kid World Citizen.

Kid World Citizen is run by a mum of 4 Becky Morales who is raising a multicultural family and sharing ‘activities that make young minds go global

I love the message behind the Kid World Citizen blog. We are also a mixed family and learning about other cultures and other countries is something I always want to encourage my kids to do. Not only is it important for them to open their minds to understand and experience things from around the world, it’s also lots of fun!

I’ve selected 10 crafts from around the world to share with you today from Kid World Citizen.

I’m sure you’ll agree that if the next generation can grow up believing and following this message then the world would be a better place.

Even More Kids Crafts from Around the World

Children should be encouraged to embrace all cultures and love each other. It can be done through family, school, and community events, which will shape the children’s perception of the world.

The world today is different than it was back in the day. There are many more cultures that exist in one society. Let us teach children to embrace these differences and to enjoy them.
