I was thrilled with the theme for the multicultural kids blogging carnival, because one of the reasons why I started blogging is to use it as a resource to educate on race, culture, and diversity to my child. I have a post on teaching my son heritage here.
However, I want to share an excerpt of my post:
“His heritage is his identity, and I pray that teaching our little one of where he comes from will help him embrace his individuality. Creating a sense of pride, of belonging, and knowing where he comes from will promote his character growth, and enable him to defend himself against prejudice and racism. Where he lives will not solely determine his identity, but so will his parent’s contribution on passing on his heritage.”
The group’s main focus is on raising global citizens. So how do they teach heritage to their children?
Varya from Little Artists has shared that her family has their own culture by adapting the best of the heritage from both sides of the family. However, there is one thing she really enjoys about her Russian heritage that she wants to pass on to her children, and that is cooking and eating!

I love this! You have done such a marvelous job of giving us an overview of these posts and how they all tie into this month's theme. I can't wait to go read them all!
You all put me to shame but have given me some excellent ideas. Thanks for sharing these posts so beautifully Frances!
Thank you Jody! Wouldn't have been possible without the wonderful contributions of our blogging friends. 🙂
Thank you! I had a great time putting it together. 🙂
I will be starting a Bible study for children in May. I plan to add teachings on good morals and money skills. Now I want to include arts and crafts with heritage culture and language.
That is awesome!!!
