This reproduction of the traditional woven Kwanzaa mat is easy to make with Crayola® Color Wonder™. Children celebrate the rich heritage and culture of Africa while expressing their creative gifts.
Fold a sheet of black construction paper lengthwise in half. Leaving a margin all around the paper, use Crayola Scissors to cut about 8 lines even widths apart into the paper at the fold. Open flat.
Cut a sheet of Crayola Color Wonder paper into strips about the same width as the lines in the construction paper.
Weave Color Wonder Paper strips through the slits in the construction paper, alternating starting over and then under.
With a Crayola Glue Stick, attach the ends of the Color Wonder Paper to the construction paper mat.
Using Color Wonder Markers in red and green, alternate coloring the squares woven into the mat. Kwanzaa colors are black, red, and green.
With Crayola Metallic FX Crayons, decorate the mat with images of Kwanzaa such as the seven candles, harvest foods, or beautiful decorative patterns.
