Some families celebrate with a Hanukkah menorah, a Kwanza Kinara, or an Advent Wreath, and all of these wonderful traditions need candles to bring them to life! Join us in the art room to make candles in honor of the holiday season! December 13- Inuit Inuksuk (3:00pm-4:00pm) In LA, our winter days rarely get very cold, but our northern neighbors, The Inuit people, have lived in freezing arctic climates across the far northern areas of Alaska, Canada, Siberia, and Greenland for thousands of years! The Inuit people have developed innovative and beautiful ways to survive in these harsh conditions. One tradition is the building of Inuksuk, a pile of stones that some think look like a person, which may have been used for navigation, as a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, and to indicate special places. Join us in Culture Club as we make our own paper rock sculptures inspired by the Inuit Inuksuk! December 20- Winter Solstice – Yule Wreaths (3:00pm-4:00pm) Join us as we celebrate Winter Solstice, the day marking the shortest day and longest night of the year. In Northern Europe, people started the tradition of making wreaths out of evergreen branches to symbolize the year as a wheel. Join us today as we make our own wreaths from natural materials you can find in your own backyard! December 27- New Year’s Around the World (3:00pm-4:00pm) The New Year is upon us and there are so many ways to ring it in! In the United Stated, we often watch a giant ball drop, throw a big party, or cheers with a few friends. But did you know there are all kinds of ways to welcome in a new year? In Colombia people carry an empty suitcase around the block in hopes of a new year full of travel! Join us in Culture club as we create suitcase collages with images of all of the places you want to travel! We will also learn about fun traditions around the world, and match the tradition to the location on a collaborative map! read less
