Passport to the World
This year Festival of Art will celebrate the rich diversity at Balboa. Volunteers will host tables representing countries and/or cultures encouraging students, faculty and families to learn a little more about the world outside of their own. It is upon us all to create an inclusive society for all.
We’d love for your Family to showcase your country and/or cultural Heritage with the Balboa Families. Lets make this a fun and educational evening for all.
(Participating families please sign up here at your earliest. Thank you)
(We'll supply you with a white disposable table cloth and a 8 by 10 picture of your national flag with name and capital on it. Rest, you are free to decorate as you or your group decides.)
Table Display Ideas:
Traditional Tablecloth/rugs, if any
Maps and Flags of the country
Art, photos of traditions, ceremonies, traditional clothes, instruments
Famous Citizens, Landmarks, Cities ....
Wear Traditional outfits or ceremonial attire
At least one Hands on arts and crafts activity for Students to learn – for example, writing their name in your language, henna art, origami, play traditional instruments, knitting or crochet etc. Bottom line is something appealing to the elementary children.......something they will remember.
