Happy Kwanzaa!

Kwanzaa means first fruits of the harvest!

Thankful for the harvest this year has blessed us with. Food to fill our stomachs and time to spend with our loved ones whether near or far!

“Everyone can use these [explained] principles below…to be a better human being!”

-(What is Kwanzaa and How is it Celebrated?, Inside Edition: Youtube) 

Seven principles of Kwanzaa are Umoja: Unity, Kujichagulia: Self Determination, Ujima: Collective Work and Responsibility, Ujamaa: Collective Economics, Nia: Purpose, Kuumba: Creativity, Imani: Faith.  

Kwanzaa Kinara  

Supplies: Paper Plate, Markers, Scissors, Construction Paper, Popsicle Sticks and Glue.  

Watch the step-by-step video on how to color around the edges of the plate in a fun, colorful pattern; write the holiday greeting, cut slits in the paper plate, color the craft sticks, cut out Kwanzaa candle flames and glue the candles to the paper!

Again Happy Kwanzaa and may the year be prosperous!

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend the Halloween Outdoor Kids Art Event on October 31st at the Culture Lab, in collaboration with The Blue Bus Project! …It was a huge turnout, despite the cold weather. We hope you enjoyed the myriad entertainment options and spooktacular fun available, while providing a safe and enjoyable event for all! In case you missed it, we hope your children’s day was super special!

We had so much fun creating creepy necklaces, decorating haunted houses, painting body parts and skulls, walking through the spooky Blue Bus; all in a CO-VID friendly space with gloves/hand sanitizer and masks! We hope these pics will remind you of a wonderful day had by all this Halloween. Keep the spirit of hope, love and and community alive as we head into a brand new era…and stay tuned for more exciting children’s offerings this winter!

See you again at our next event or class. If you were not able to join us this time, please join our E-List today! Sign up here.
