Kwanzaa Kufi Hat

Felt strips are cut and glued together to make a Kwanzaa Kufi with making friends.  Many grandfathers and other older men wear a kufi every day to symbolize their status as wise elders, religious people, or family patriarchs.  It has become identified primarily with persons of West African heritage, who wear it to show pride in their culture, history, and religion and is traditionally, when worn by men.  The kufi is a sign of peace, mourning, renewal or protection of the mind.

Good for ages 8 and up.
