Tanzania Squash Craft


A calabash is the gourd or gourd-like fruit of various plants. Some people in Tanzania and other African countries make bottles or containers, or even musical instruments out of calabashes. Some even use dried, hollowed-out calabashes as motorcycle helmets.

To Try
You can make a vase out of a butternut squash. Ask an adult to cut the top off the smaller end. Use a spoon to scoop out the insides about halfway down the squash. Add artificial flowers.

Christians in Tanzania
Life can be dangerous for followers of Jesus in Muslim Tanzania. People who leave Islam to become Christians often have to go into hiding to escape threats and persecution. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.)
