We are leaving Africa and heading off to Southwest Asia to Iran!
Iran, traditionally known as Persia, is a country known for beautiful carpets, amazing art and architecture.
Fun Facts: Did you know that Polo Games started in Persia in the 6th century BC?- it was originally used as calvary training! The founder of Ebay, Pierre Omidyar, is Iranian and many Biblical figures are said to be buried in Iran.
The Iranian flag is a tritone flag with horizontal stripes and a globe or stylized “Allah” in the center. There are also intricate white designs separating the green and red from the white, I opted to omit this simply because I thought it would be too hard.
You will need…
- White paper
- Red paint
- Green paint
- Red paper
Start by folding the paper in thirds, paint one side red and the other side green, leaving the center white.
Cut out the center symbol which consists of 4 vertical lines and two sets of curved lines on the top and bottom.
Glue the symbol in the center and you’re all done!
As a nation Iranians LOVE picnics! Any excuse to go outside and enjoy some yummy food, sign me up 🙂
So me and the two kiddos headed outside, enjoyed a nature walk and then snuggled on a blanket and had a picnic.
Go outside, enjoy some sun and have a picnic like they do in Iran.
