Activities for kids and families

Here are 9 ideas to help your family partner with us and learn Tanzanian culture alongside us!

Pray

Get a copy of Pray Around the World, a booklet designed especially for kids to help them pray for CMS workers. Ask Kate to send you one from the CMS SA office.

Look

Browse our photos of life in Tanzania.

Think

Take our Tanzanian culture quiz.

Craft

Make a map of Tanzania. Locate Tanzania on a world map. Colour in this printable version of a map of Tanzania to look like the Tanzanian flag. Stick it to your fridge using our magnet in the middle where Dodoma is. (If you don’t have a magnet, the CMS office can send you one!)

Eat

Eat breakfast, lunch or dinner like a Tanzanian by using our Tanzanian recipes.

Watch

After watching our trip to the markets video, tie a doll onto your child’s back while they play!

Play

Make your own Tanzanian soccer ball using this demonstration and these instructions.

Experience

See how far you can walk balancing a bucket on your head. This is a normal way for men and women in Tanzania to carry their shopping or things to sell!

Write

Post a photo of your family and a message on our Facebook page! Or email it to atdavis@cms.org.au if you’re concerned about privacy. We promise to write back!

**People often ask if they or their children can send us a care package. However, Tanzania has high import taxes, including on things sent through the post, so it’s not worth it.
