Proceeds of the Daylong Journey Benefit the Louisiana Children's Museum.Travelers will travel to Croatia and learn to speak and write in Croatian; play Cat's Cradle and create an Edelweiss flower in Germany, and make crystals like those found in South Ghana. Explorers will play soccer and have their faces painted as a Mayan of Copan in Honduras and visit the Taj Mahal, create an authentic rangoli painting and taste aloo chat, a popular and flavorful snack in India. In the Philippines, explore the world of volcanos and predict when they will erupt and decorate a parol, a beautiful Filipino lantern.

Continue the journey to Puerto Rico where young voyagers will create colorful maracas and play juego de peregrine, a game similar to hopscotch. In Switzerland, dress like a Swiss mountaineer in an alpine hat and taste popular Swiss chocolates and cheeses.

The Children's World's Fair Center Stage, sponsored by Pan American Life Insurance Group, will feature special cultural performances throughout the day. Learn songs performed by the Deutsches Haus' Kinderchor and the chicken dance.
