Join Art In History and explore the Bantu, their migration, and its impact on Africa and the rest of the world. There are more than 300 Bantu languages used in Africa today, by more than 240 million people. Swahili is one of the languages, and remains the second most spoken language in Africa; after Arabic. Bantu groups, such as the Kuba, created beautiful masks which are spiritual symbols. They are used during ceremonies, and it was believed that the wearer of the mask was transformed into the entity it represented. Replicate a Kuba mask today and let the learning begin!

There are a lot of neat historical crafts and craft ideas available, but it's not easy to find one that you'd happily keep on display after that school year, right? That's why we're so impressed with these kits. You're actually painting a pottery replica of a historical artifact... no paper mache or duct tape needed! Each kit includes an unfinished piece of pottery based on the artifact, a paint brush, sponge, paint, a disposable paint palette, step-by-step painting instructions, and craft paper/packing material, to protect your painting area. To take the activity further and learn more about the artifact and the historical time period that it represents, take advantage of the free lesson download, which is packed with lots of additional information. We love the quality of the materials and the reasonable price! Made in the USA. - Jess
