Heritage Dinner

Helps get in touch with kids’ own backgrounds and to facilitate communication of this to the other members of the group to get an idea of where each is “coming from.” A potluck dinner variation. Each person brings to the event a dish that represents his/her own ancestry. The kids should also bring a “family treasure” or some relic or photo or other item of interest and be prepare to tell its story. The item need not be valuable except in terms of the story behind it.
