Culture Swapper BadgeWelcome to the Culture Swapper! I am proud to be co-hosting the Worldwide Culture Swappers link up again this month, created and sponsored by Worldwide Culture Swap and co-hosted by myself and Kid World Citizen.

The monthly Worldwide Culture Swapper is a way for bloggers to share blog posts or photos about anything related to culture, geography, language, traditions, customs, etc. So if you are searching for new ideas for teaching your children about the world, this is the place to look!

Each month favorites will be highlighted on our website and Facebook page. In addition, we pin featured entries to our Raising Global Citizens board on Pinterest, so be sure to check it out!

Here are a few of our favorite posts from last month’s Culture Swapper (in addition to the ones featured during the month on our Facebook page).

Connecting Family and Seoul - Lunar New Year Activities for Toddlers

Connecting Famliy & Seoul showed us how to celebrate the Lunar New Year with a toddler.

Maries Pastiche - Firecrackers Craft

Marie’s Pastiche shared a number of great activities for the Lunar New Year, including this Firecracker Craft.

Educators Spin On It - Making Baklava with Kids

Finally, The Educators’ Spin On It got our mouths watering with this post on making baklava with kids, part of the wonderful Around the World in 12 Dishes series.

Thanks to everyone who shared in February’s Culture Swapper. We can’t wait to see what you’ll share this month!

And now on to this month’s Culture Swappers Link up….

The rules
  • Link up any family friendly activity, craft, recipe, articles and posts that say a bit about your nationality or one that you are learning about.
  • You can submit more than one link so come back throughout the month to share your activities.
  • By linking you are giving us permission to feature your activity on our website and Facebook page.
  • Please grab a Culture Swapper badge from the sidebar and put it somewhere on your blog (or add a text link to us in your post).
  • Sorry, no giveaways or shops.

A new Link up will start on the first day of every month.

Let’s see what you’ve been up to!

  1. I would like to feature some wedding cultural traditions. For example, Nigerian, Korean, etc.

    Thing is, that while i have a blog that I update daily, I have a shop attached to my blogsite. Is that a problem. I would only link to my blog.

    Let me know cause I would really love to participate.

  2. I have been picking some very good Pins from Pinterest for my Around the World class. You can find me under Laura Oreamuno and the board is Around the Word. It is allways good to take a look at things that are clasified. Hope helps someone. Thanks to you for all your help.San Jose Costa Rica.

    • Laura, thanks for sharing your wonderful Pinterest board! Y saludos! Mi esposo es de San Jose y siempre que se pueda alli vamos a visitar a su familia. Viva Tiquicia!

      • Increible!! Que pequeño es el mundo. Estoy a cargo del programa de Science y Alrededor del Mundo en Saint Anthony School, Moravia. Aunque se debe seguir un lineamento institucional muy complejo (planeamiento, fechas, materia), introduzco hands on y free play lo mas que puedo.Un gusto conocerlos. Laura Oreamuno.

  3. I apologize in advance for the constant questions – but due to my inexperience I’m not sure how to get the button with the right link.


    There is no code to put this button on my website. I’m not sure how to grab it. I tried to just copy the image, but the link is destroyed. I am assuming that when someone pushes on the button, it’s supposed to take them to your website. Can you help an ignoramous out?

    • Oops! So glad you asked! When I transferred my site a few months back, I forgot to put the “grabbable” code in my sidebar! Thx for letting me know. I will add it this evening 🙂

    • Lisa, you should be able to grab the button now. Thanks for your patience!

  4. […] Mama Smiles shared a very important link in Google+ .  Thanks Mama!  For this month’s projects, I have committed do doing culturally related art projects each week – which I will feature on my blog on Saturdays.  I am linking up with All Done Monkey’s Cultural Swappers Link up. […]

  5. Thanks for sharing this culture swapper, there are some great ideas on here. I’m keen to try the lunar new year ones since we’ve started learning Mandarin 🙂

  6. Wow! So glad to have found this resource! What a great idea! Thanks for hosting. 🙂
