When I was a kid, my mother and I used to walk to my aunt and uncle’s house with our little blue wagon. There was a wooden table on the front with three long boards that sat on blocks. On the back of the wagon, there was a piece of cardboard that had three holes. On each hole was a different colored piece of paper.
My mom and I would cut all the paper and put them on the wooden table. Then we would glue the paper onto the top of the board. That way, we could get all the fun stuff we needed. And then, we would glue the board to the wagon. That way, we could put all the other colored paper on the other side of the wagon.
kwanzaa is a celebration of African culture. We put on paper with colored plastic pieces in the shapes of animals to represent the animals of Africa. We make paper animals for the whole family.
The other kids had this idea of using the same paper animals for the kwanzaa craft, but instead they wrote the animals with their fingers. I was so amused I didn’t even make it to the craft, I just told the craft instructor that I could have the kwanzaa crafts.
Because these animals were colored with plastic, they’re harder to see in the pictures, but they look so much more colorful.
I love that the kwanzaa craft is a way to get everyone involved in a project. It’s great for preschoolers, and the kids are always learning something about the animals. The one drawback is the kids are not as creative as I am, so we often end up with boring animals rather than interesting ones.
I agree that the preschooler craft is really neat, especially for the kids who love animals. It’s a really great way to get everyone involved in some craft with minimal distractions. It also encourages kids to be active and excited about something.
In the preschool craft, you can make a variety of animals using simple materials found in the classroom. We used a red felt pen, glitter glue, construction paper, and ribbon for the elephant, a blue felt pen for the dog, and a red felt pen for the bird.
The preschool craft has been available at kwanzaacraft.com for about a year now, but in order to get in on the free samples you need to sign up for an account. The $4.95 charge is for a child’s account, which isn’t too bad if you’re giving out the free stuff.
I remember the first time I saw it, I thought it was the kind of thing one would see in the commercials for the new Gameboy Color. In my mind I thought it was just another cool preschool game about building stuff with paper and glue.
