Multicultural crafts are great resources for teachers, after-school clubs and families with young children.
They offer a great way for children to combine art with learning about the way of life of other cultures.
Native American Crafts are superb for giving an insight into where these proud people live and the music they love – colouring in tipi kits or making hand drum kits is always such fun. The symbols associated with Native Americans – totem poles, buffalo, eagles and headdresses – make art involving this culture so pleasing to look at.
Chinese-related arts and crafts are so enjoyable for children to make at the time of the Chinese New Year. Kids love to find out about the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays and if they can make art to celebrate this centuries-old occasion then so much the better.
Art involving Chinese fans, lanterns and dragons will always look great in a classroom display!
