Kwanzaa Kinara Activity

kwanzaa blog
Kwanzaa, a week long holiday celebrated from December 26th to January 1st, is a special time when people gather to celebrate their African heritage. 
One of the ways families decorate their homes is with a Kwanzaa Kinara. For each day of Kwanzaa, a candle is lit to celebrate the seven Kwanzaa principles. 
The activity sheet below represents the Kinara. Traditionally, three candles are colored red to represent struggles faced, three candles should be colored in green to represent a prosperous future, and one large candle in the center is black to represent the richness of African heritage.
Color in the Kinara, cut it out and glue it to construction paper. For each day of Kwanzaa, color in the corresponding candle, cut it out, and attach it to the Kinara on the construction paper.
