Family Fun: Create and Explore
Start the summer by playing Bầu cua cá cọp, which translates to gourd-crab-shrimp-fish. Instead of dots on the dice, there is an image of a crab, a tiger, a fish, a shrimp and a dried gourd that is used as a traditional drinking vessel. Print out the dice and game board and find out who is going to have the luckiest summer! Thank you to the Wing Luke Museum for sharing this fun game with all of us!
Interview your heroes! Learn all about interviewing and collecting stories in your own life. Interview your friends and family and discover your own legacy! Then it’s up to you to decide what to do with what you’ve learned. Get inspired to write a poem, draw a picture, or find another creative way to share your story based on your interview questions.
Break out your scissors and glue! You'll need a few household items (and a brass fastener) to put together a clock that will teach you to count to 12 in another language. The numbers are written out in Arabic, but are also transliterated into English so you can read along! Watch the video from last year for more instructions.
Go get some more flowers because we're making Flower Mandalas next! Thank you to Northwest Share for sharing their Spring Festival with us! Explore their full festival here. Gather your friends and family (safely!) to celebrate spring with stunning floral arrangements!
