Kwanzaa celebrates traditional African values such as family, community, and self-improvement. Join in this celebration of culture!
Read about the origin, meaning, and principles of Kwanzaa. Find pictures showing the seven principles of Kwanzaa (unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith).
Cover your work area with newspaper. Using Crayola® Washable Kid's Paint and Paint Brushes, create a pattern of alternating red, black, and green segments around the edges of a heavy paper plate to represent the Kwanzaa mkeka or mat. Paint one sheet each of white construction paper in the colors red, black, brown, and green. Paint more construction paper in fruit colors. Dry.
On the backs of the painted papers, use Crayola Colored Pencils to draw the three red, three green, and one black candle for the Kwanzaa kinara or candleholder. Cut out candles with Crayola Scissors. On the brown painted paper, draw and cut out a kinara. Using Crayola School Glue, attach the candleholder and the candles in the middle of the paper plate.
Draw pieces of fruit on the backs of the painted papers. Cut them out and glue them around the kinara on the paper plate.
Write Happy Kwanzaa! or your own holiday message with Crayola Washable Super Tips Fine Line Markers.
Punch a hole in the top edge of the plate. To create a hanger, pull ribbon or yarn through the opening and tie.
