Happy Kwanzaa!

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.  ~Kenyan Proverb

Kwanzaa is an African-American cultural holiday which originated in 1966. Created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, Kwanzaa is celebrated from Dec. 26 - Jan. 1. Each day of the celebration focuses on one of seven principles ("Nguzo Saba"). The name, "Kwanzaa", is taken from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza" which means "first fruits."

These are little Kwanzaa cards showing the seven principles. You can print out two sheets and play a game of memory or use your creativity to come up with your own game.
