Learn About a Dutch Christmas with Your Kids
My boys and I love learning about how different countries around the world celebration holidays. These studies are magnificent ways to extend our geography and world cultures learning fun!
One of the countries that my boys and I hadn't learned about was the Netherlands. When I started to do my research for our Christmas Fun Around the World plans and activities, I decided that we had to add this country to our list.
As my boys and I enjoyed our holiday learning fun last year, we discovered so many cool things about a Dutch Christmas. We had never heard of the story of Sinterklaas or Zwarte Pieten (Black Peters).
And a St. Nicholas Eve treasure hunt with poems and riddles sounded like so much fun! (In fact, it gave me the idea for creating a Christmas Tree Scavenger Hunt and a Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt.)
With all of our Christmas Around the World studies, my boys and I had a blast making comparisons to our holiday stories, customs, and food. We also had a blast finding similarities and differences between how Christmas is celebrated in the Netherlands vs. other countries.
Recommended Resources for Learning About Christmas in Netherlands
To help me draft plans and activities for our Christmas learning fun, I first did an online search on our local library's page. Luckily, I found a few books that were perfect for learning about Christmas in Netherlands.
Here are some great books and resources about a Dutch Christmas. See if your library has them or buy the resources if you'd like to refer to them year after year.
