May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! In addition to reading diverse stories, learning about history, and trying new foods, another great way to explore different cultures with your kids is by getting hands-on with arts and crafts. Celebrate Asian heritage with your kids by making a few of these crafts and learning about traditions in Japan, Korea, and Polynesia.
