Kwanzaa is an African-American holiday which has been celebrated since the mid-1960s, mainly in America, for a week from 26th December each year.
What's New at Activity Village?
Something new for Thanksgiving this year - kids can have a go at these fun colour by pattern pages. We have a Native American boy and girl, and a pilgrim boy and girl. And of course we have many more colouring pages and colour by numbers too...
I've had quite a few emails over the last couple of weeks asking when our 2014 planner pages would be ready. Well, here they are! I hope you find them useful.
I've just added a small number of new birthday puzzles and mazes to the website. These make great fillers for party bags, or after-tea activities. And perhaps a birthday treat in the classroom, too?
It's the first day of November and we are already thinking about Christmas! Today I've added 23 lovely new handwriting worksheets to the site featuring all sorts of Christmas words for the kids to practise.
Maria wrote in to ask whether we could create some "colour by pattern" pictures because her six-year-old pupils enjoyed them and their existing supply had run out. So here are ours - just a few as a trial.
I've just added four new Halloween crafts to the site - last minute, I know! But I hope you enjoy them. We have two tea light holder crafts, some gorgeous conker jack o' lanterns, and - my favourite - these ghost leaf prints. So cute!
I've added eight new Diwali puzzles to the site today, including three "complete the picture" activities which we've never done before but I think the kids will enjoy!
