Day 357: Family Traditions and Festivals

Discuss your family history with your children. Tell them about their ethnic origin and cultural heritage. Discuss family traditions and how they got started. Point out, on a globe, where their great-grandmother is from. All of these discussions help kids understand their place in the family, the extended family, the neighborhood, the community, their country, and the world. At the holiday dinner table ask the following questions of older relatives that will lead to a discussion of history:

  • Did you have television or video games when you were young? If not, what did you do when you were bored?
  • Did you have a favorite doll or toy?
  • What was your favorite story when you were little?
  • What kind of games did you play?

Make a  Snowman!Their answers can lead to a wealth of knowledge and deeper appreciation for historical events. Use the video camera to record these memories and preserve them for generations to come. They also make wonderful gifts for other family members.

Make A Family Tree with these simple instructions.

Do you celebrate any of these holidays?

It might be fun to discuss or celebrate any of these festivals with your child. Reading stories about other places and traditions is a wonderful way to introduce your child to new cultures! Many museums highlight cultural events at this time of year – a great way to take a break from the holiday rush or spend a rainy afternoon. Take a Virtual Christmas Tour to see how people celebrate throughout the world. Visit this website to find out more about various holidays as well as activities for enjoying them.
