The art museum in Savannah is having a Russian art display soon, the decorative arts of the Romanov dynasty. Piggy backing on that we are having a Russian cultural activity with some other homeschoolers. Food will be included.
I started by reading a brief bit about Russia, it's history and some fun facts from Activity Village. The I had a few library books about Russia that I gave to the older kids with a map. The got to color/ fill in the map by drawing on where the capitol is, landmarks, and natural resources.
A fun cultural thing Russia is known for is the "matryoshka" or nesting doll.
And of course there was food there to eat as well. I went really simple with this since kids were involved. As much as my kids and I love borscht, I know other people aren't always as adventurous. The main was was a box of Russian candy I ordered from Amazon. It came with a variety of little treats to try.
I loved the look of this chocolate.
