Do you want to teach your kids about other cultures without having to pay thousands of dollars to travel to a different continent? Do you wonder what the best way would be to bring a bit of that country into your home is?
Food. Hands down food is the best way to do just about anything in my humble opinion.
Because each country is bound to have a traditional food, why not try your hand at making it? Having a Mexican theme one month and then trying Indian the next month, Moroccan another month… The options are endless! And nowadays it is so easy to find a whole lot of different recipes, you’re sure to find something that the whole family would love with just a few Google or Pinterest searches!
While you can do a full dinner with an entree from that country along with appetizers and a dessert, you can totally just do a dessert or just a simple dish if you don’t have the time or resources to go all out. Just print out a photo of the country and get the family together to talk about what you know about the country already, and then do some research together to broaden your knowledge! You can even find out how to say basic phrases in that language and practice saying “hello” and “good-bye” to each other. Music is also a great way to learn about that country; find a few fun songs originating from that place and listen to them! Honestly there are so many simple ways to learn more about different countries and help your kids, too!
Who knows, they may even ace their next geography test after a few of these “International Nights!”
