Hand-in-Hand: Community, Kindness & Cultural Awareness
Exposing children to different world cultures through music, art, and cooking makes the world a little smaller and reinforces that kids are kids – no matter where they live, what language they speak, or what color their skin is. Through simple games, stories, and songs children quickly learn typical daily words and phrases in a variety of languages, including sign. Utilizing puppetry, role-playing, free expression dance, and yoga we’ll encourage community, kindness, creative ways to avoid conflict, and respect for others. Whether we’re baking aggression cookies, playing community hop scotch, developing a world passport, growing a family tree, eating friendship snacks, painting our feelings, or dancing the language limbo, children will be learning ways to appropriately express their feelings, practice patience, and learn to work cooperatively with others, as well as countering the stress experienced by young people living in a hurry-up world. Ages 3 to 5 years.
