The American immigration/travel ban is up in the air right now as court battles loom, but regardless of how it ends up or how you feel about it personally, it is always a good idea to take time to learn more about other countries that are different from ours and try to understand that as people we are not all that different.
A Crafty Arab has collected resources and crafts for the banned nations, which you can do as a way to talk to your kids about the immigration ban or just to learn about these different countries.
She has at least one craft for all of the countries involved — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — and offers suggestions for books to read with your kids and for adults to read themselves about each nation.
Because she is from Libya she has a variety of recipes from that nation as well.
Check out her site for tons of crafts and learning activities around the Arab League nations and more.
