|One age-appropriate way to share the world’s religions with kids is through their holidays. These faith-based occasions frequently make use of stories, festive foods, group activities, visits to sacred spaces, and other meaningful rituals. For that reason, they can serve as a great entry point for both families and classrooms. However, most of the resources offered are grounded in a particular tradition. They also, generally-speaking, have the goal of establishing and maintaining a specific faith path.
That’s why we offer a variety of non-devotional, experiential resources. Our stories, articles, lesson plans, crafts, and PowerPoint presentations teach kids about the holy day in a fun, engaging way while avoiding cultural appropriation. As a result, they are appropriate for both public school classrooms as a well as multifaith or no-faith families.
Also, we love feedback! So stay in touch and let us know what worked, what didn’t work, what additional resources you would like, and what we might do better. Drop an e-mail (worldreligions4kids [at] gmail [dot] com) or fill out the contact form on our Contact page.
