Bring Culture To Your Table (family and homeschool)

One fun way to get kids into the kitchen and have a bit of family fun while learning at the same time is having a cultural night. I have shared with you the flags of 5 different countries that could easily be printed and used as place mats, some recipes inspired by the country, as well as craft ideas you could use to decorate and while you are at it you may want to read some books that are inspired by the country.

  1. We always use chopsticks and cheap Asian dishes whenever we eat Japanese or Chinese - I love that you use the flag for placemats!!
