Tomorrow is United Nations Day. I always remember this date because it is also my birthday. :)
I posted this project a little while ago but I thought that it would be a good project to do if you would like to "celebrate" United Nations Day. If the weather holds up we are going to an international festival this weekend. I love to share my love of other countries and cultures with my boys.
I have been a high school Spanish teacher for six years now. When I was pregnant with D, I took a group of students on a trip to Mexico. (When we starting planning the trip, I was not pregnant. That little surprise happened after it was too late to cancel the trip. I even climbed to the top of a pyramid four months pregnant. :) Anyways, I haven't been on any more trips lately, but I still get the travel magazines from several companies. I always give them to D to look through since they have wonderful pictures of places from around the world. When he was done looking at the last magazine, I cut out the pictures and glued them to a piece of butcher paper to make a table cloth. For each meal, I would ask D where he wanted to eat (China, España, Inglaterra, etc.) and he would put his plate on that place. The pictures made for great conversations all week.
