It’s Kwanzaa every single day in our household.
From an early age, it’s important to introduce the values you want your children to uphold as they get older. For our family, the Kwanzaa principles play a large part in outlining the values in our household.
Kujichagulia- Self Determination
Ujima- Collective Work & Responsibility
Ujamaa- Cooperative Economics
Each candle representing a different principle, we practice with Jaali by giving him the candles, kinara and unity cup to explore on his own.
So while he may not be able to say the principles, he already recognizes the kinara and understands that it holds the candles.
