Crafting Pakistan

Next up... you guessed it, craft time. After our flag it was time to create something that we could use for our final celebration that is somehow relevant to Pakistan. As I often do, I found myself wandering through the craft store looking for an idea. After consulting a friend that is from Pakistan, I decided that we should make beaded napkin rings. Since the colors of Pakistan are green and white, those are the colors that we chose. We used a gold colored wire that is a 20 gauge, strong enough to hold it's shape, but soft enough to be able to bend.

Aiden focused on beading his napkin ring.
Eliana's little hands working hard to get the bead on the wire.

With the completion of our flag and our craft, it was time to finalize the details for our upcoming Pakistani Celebration. Do you think it will be as yummy as all of the others have been? Do you think that I will find music that speaks to me like I have in the past? Check back on Monday to find out. Also, find out why we had to take our show on the road.

  1. You say "final celebration" in the blog...does that mean this is your last country, or it is the final day of Pakistan before moving on to another country?

  2. Oh, sorry about that. It means the final day of Pakistan before moving on to another country. Thanks for catching that!

  3. I went to a Pakistani restaurant in DC once--it was fantastic, so I'm sure your feast will be, too.
