Summary

Summary

The seven candles in the KINARA are lit. Homemade gifts are exchanged. Friends gather for a festive feast called a KARAMU. It is Kwanzaa, and everyone is getting ready to celebrate! Using these easy-to-follow directions and traceable patterns, you can make a storytelling stick to use when you pass down a traditional African tale, a strip-quilt MKEKA on which to place your Kwanzaa symbols, a seven candles game to get into the spirit of Kwanzaa, and more!
