Tangrams! I love this ancient Chinese puzzle game. I even have a tangram app on my iPod. The kids got a pretty big kick out of being able to make the shapes on the puzzle page I printed out for them too! However, what they all loved best of all was...
A LOT! There was: scones from Scotland, coconut macaroons from India, Enchiladas from Mexico, Eggrolls from China, Sopapilla Cheesecake (Greek Mexican fusion), Goulash from Hungary, Chips and Salsa from Mexico, Kringla from Norway, Mango from Chile, Kiwi from New Zealand, Pita chips and hummas from Greece, Quesadillas from Mexico, Fortune Cookies from China, and Lamb meatballs with tzatziki sauce from Greece. I was so fat and happy when it was all said and done! And boy howdy could those kids put away some food! They all said they wanted to do food day every week!
International games. This picture is of a game called Cat and Mouse, which I believe is from Russia. One child is picked to be the cat and one is picked to be the mous. The rest of the children form a tight circle, which acts as a barrier between cat and mouse. The cat tries to get the mouse. If the cat breaches the circle, the mouse runs out. The kids who are the wall try to help the mouse and hinder the cat. It was pretty fun and hilarious! Once the cat catches the mouse, two new children can be picked!
