Parents are always looking for great ways to make special days even more special. Tracy Douglas, Founder and Spokesperson of One Wee World, LLC, suggests putting a new twist in your next party by celebrating another countries' culture.

"Our entire multicultural DVD series is centered on a kids' cultural celebration," says Douglas. "When I threw the Mexican Cultural Party for our premiere DVD, the kids just had the best time! And I was simply floored when, months later, both the younger tots and the older children who attended our party would come up to me and still talk excitedly about something they'd experienced there."

The three most important elements in a cultural party are the food, the music, and a great arts and crafts project. Pick Mexico for example. Put an assembly taco line on the menu, play some festive mariachi music, and have the kids make their own paperbag piñatas to whack around. And instead of a birthday cake, why not a birthday flan? The possibilities are endless!

To add a little pizzaz, put on the segment of "One Wee World Celebrates Mexico" that corresponds with what's going on with the party. Watch the "Music" section and then go out and dance a jaraba, play the "Food" segment and then munch on taquitos. Go ahead and assemble a paperbag piñata along with the kids in the "Arts" section.

What's so special about throwing cultural parties is that they don't have to be for just birthdays. Sneak in a little learning by celebrating other cultures' special days like Mexico's Cinco de Mayo or the Chinese New Year or France's Bastille Day. It's fresh, it's fun, and children and their families can experience other cultures' foods, customs, and music!
