It’s time for the fifth Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop! Please link up your posts related to sharing cultures with kids and check back to find other great resources.

There were some really great posts last month which made choosing two favorites difficult, but here are my picks: Crystal’s Tiny Treasures read Handa’s Surprise (about fruit and an African village) and used the story as a way to introduce some new foods to her kids.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through all the posts and found it difficult to select just a few to feature, but here are my picks: I really enjoyed Teaching Stars’ post about studying France through Madeline and I love the passports the girls received for their travels. I am also coveting the adorable anatomy aprons they used to pull out a little science from the story.

I also thought that this hot-pot looked amazing. And finally […] Read more »
