Learn About a Country Reunion
Most people, especially in the United States, have
ancestors that came from other countries. One fun way to
celebrate your heritage is to have a family reunion based
on that country.
Use pictures of the country or traditional decorations
from the country as decorations. You can also use the
colors of the flag of the country to decorate. Let your
imagination go and decorate using anything that relates
to the country. Pictures of the flag, national bird,
animal or flower etc. will also educate everyone further
about the chosen country.
Look up recipes of traditional foods from the country and
ask different family members to bring different items.
Have a potluck and enjoy the food. Find the countries
national anthem or maybe even traditional music and play
it in the background while people are eating.
If you or another family member knows the story behind
your ancestors immigrating to the U.S. have tell the
story to everyone. Find out what games are traditionally
played and play them with the family. If there is an easy
craft that is traditionally done in your country of
origin; that would also make a fun activity.
