All New Crafts for Kwanzaa
From the Series All New Holiday Crafts for Kids
The family Kwanzaa celebration can be made even more special when children contribute to the festive air. Youngsters can enhance their family’s Kwanzaa celebration with a “Light the Candles” Kwanzaa Card, a Nguzo Saba Favor, or a Bendera Notepad all made from easy-to-find houshold materials. Among the twenty-two easy-to-make crafts are some projects that can be used to decorate for and celebrate the holiday and others that emphasize the meaning of Kwanzaa.
