It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
How many of you have a little girl or boy who loves their dolls and stuffed animals? This week's item is definitely for you. My little girl is incredibly attached to her dolls; she carries them around everywhere. Even though these dolls are quite large - I think that my daughter would attempt to drag them all over the house as well.
This week's item is called Heart For Heart Girls and they are dolls from all over the world. They have dolls from Laos, Belarus, and Afghanistan, just to name a few. So you get a great sturdy doll that will last quite a while that will also teach you something about a country that you may have not been to. Or if you have or your family is from there - you actually have a doll to represent your culture - hooray!
Check out the video and then print out the page below for a quick list of potential questions, comments, and activities to engage in with your kids as you are playing with these dolls. There's also a link to buy them - and there are lots of girls to choose from.
Which dolls are you most interested in? How will you use these to learn more about a particular region, cultural group, or country? What other diverse doll options are out there? Share suggestions with us or leave a comment below.
Most of all, enjoy. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
