Enjoy this party game fitted to the Kwanzaa party theme:
MYRSHIM: 10-12 players are invited to take part in this game. Then they are explained the rules: One of the players moves away and turns his/her back to all the rest players. In this time one of players is given a candy. But the player mustn't eat it, he/she just puts it in the mouth. Then all the players including the player with the candy, begin to pronounce one and the same word "myrshim" (in Kazakh it means "to chew"). The task of the 1st player (the player who stands with his back to all the rest players) is to guess who of the players has a candy in his/her mouth. If the player guesses he receives the prize and chooses the leader, if he doesn't guess all the players say to him "oh-oh-oh!" So the game begins. The leader moves away, turns his back to all the rest players and the instructor gives a wrapped up candy to one of the players. When the player unwraps the candy and puts it into the mouth the game begins: all the players begin to say "myrshim, myrshim, myrshim" and the instructor calls out the leader.
And, here is another Kwanzaa party idea:
I HAVE NEVER: Each person receives several counters (toothpicks, pennies, etc.) Then take turns around the circle. Each person tells of something they have never done (example: I have never broken a bone or I have never traveled out of the country). Anyone who has done this must give the speaker one of their toothpicks or pennies. After going around the circle several times, the person with the most tokens wins.
Kwanzaa, neither political nor religious, brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. A yummy Kwanzaa menu includes Sweet Potato Pie, Southern Fried Okra, African Squash And Yams (futari, Vegetable Stew and Black-eyed Peas With Ham. The Kwanzaa flag The children cut red, green, and black paper. The basic Kwanzaa party principal is to gathering of family, friends and community, reverence for the creator, to honor ancestors, recommitment to the highest cultural ideals of the African community such as truth, justice, respect of nature and people and celebration of the "Good of Life" such as life, struggle, family and community.
