Well, stop wondering what to do! This Christmas break is the perfect time to get your kids (or grandkids) in the kitchen and teach them about some different cultures through cooking!  Exploring new cultures can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. When we introduce children to cultures with a thread of familiarity (like cooking, or Christmas), then it becomes a fun activity that they can relate to instead of a daunting task.

(And you never know: a picky eater might even  find a new favorite or become receptive to trying something new because it is Christmas-themed.)  Today, we’re bringing you a very special Christmas gift: a free, downloadable Christmas Around the World Cookbook. The PDF contains 7 different, kid-friendly recipes that you can make with the children in your life this holiday season!

Why Try Recipes from Around the World?

Kids need to explore different cultures. After all, if you live in North America, chances are you are living in a world of blended cultures. Helping children better appreciate some of these cultures gives them a better understanding of the people around them, and of the many exciting and fascinating cultures around the world.

Cooking is a simple and fun way to get children interested in other cultures. After all, it is a messy, hands-on activity where you get to snack!  Who wouldn’t love that?  Cooking these recipes will be a fun way to get the children in your life involved in learning and trying new things!

How to Use This Christmas Around the World Cookbook

There are seven recipes, each from a different country, in this downloadable Christmas Around the World Cookbook. Preceding each recipe is an introduction to its country of origin and some information on what people in that country enjoy doing at Christmastime!

Take the opportunity to talk about the country before you even start cooking. This is a chance to start finding threads of commonality with other cultures. Children might find out they have more in common with a child in Africa or Russia than they thought.

At the end of the cookbook, there are even some questions you can discuss with your children about their experience cooking recipes from, and learning about, different cultures!

Finding common threads seems more and more important these days. The world, thanks to the internet, is a smaller place, but not a kinder one. Allowing children to appreciate and connect to other cultures will help them create a more compassionate world. They won’t be so afraid or put off when they come into contact with different cultures as they grow.

Children who explore other cultures while they are young usually grow up to have a broader appreciation for other people’s cultures and traditions. Learning about (and trying out) recipes from different countries is a terrific way to start. It’s also a great idea to incorporate other geography games and activities into your homeschool to teach your children about other cultures and the diversity of this beautiful world we live in.

Download the free printable below for a wonderful opportunity to get into the kitchen and explore with your children. You won’t regret it. Not only will you be learning together and making fun memories in the kitchen, but you will be preparing them for a lifetime of exploration!
