Ojo de Dios
One of the beauties of being in the United States is that it contains a variety of cultures. One way to teach our children respect and appreciation for these cultures is by learning from others' beliefs and traditions. Many indigenous populations in Central and South America use textiles to represent their culture and day-to-day lifestyle. In this activity, give your child some insight into another culture by helping her create an ojo de Dios (eye of God), a representation of the yarn weaving done by the Huichol population of northwest Mexico.
