Kids' Activities

kids activities

Kids’ activities can be more than a new video game or a trip to the local theme park! Kids’ activities can be educational and provide life-changing impact. In this magazine, we’re sharing activities that kids do around the world and using them as teaching tools.

Some of the activities focus on cultures unfamiliar to many kids. For example, children will learn about Tanzania and compare how the kids in that country are different from those who live in your hometown. As you talk about the similarities and differences, use the activity to education your children about poverty and other global issues.

Another one of the kids’ activities is a Haitian fable about a dog and cat. Your children will learn how kids in other countries play and have fun… all while having fun themselves!

Let your kids’ activities be fun and educational!
