How To Make Indonesian Art with Kids (Free Curriculum Guide!)

Morning Circle Media batiks

Books take us to places beyond our wildest dreams. I've never been to Indonesia, though I have lots of friends who are Indonesian. Writing Haiqal's Garden, with friends and authors Hani and Syarif, showed me a country of immense beauty and a deep respect for the earth.  

It also introduced me to a wonderful and ancient art form called batik. Using a wax-resistant substance and dye on cloth, many Indonesian batik patterns are symbolic and may be used to bring health to infants, wish a bride and groom luck, or designate royalty.

Making batiks with your children is easy to do, and it's a great opportunity for them to build social-emotional, organizational, and math and science skills!
