A alternative and fun July 4th activity!
I have mentioned before how much I love the “Kid Citizen Book Collection” read about them here, a collection of books that inform children about the world and inspire them to be better global citizens. How bad can that be?
Recently I picked up “How to Build Your Own Country” by Valerie Wyatt from the library and again we were not disappointed.
Use the book as a guide and your off creating your very own personal country!
Step 1: Stake out your identity by creating a flag, writing a national anthem, putting your name on a map
Step 2: Run the country by holding elections, forming a governement, and laying down the law
Step 3: Meet the neighbors by joining international organizations and finding allies who will help you face the big issues of the world.
Next week I’ll share our country!
