Cinco de Mayo

Paper Circle Bugs
With Cinco de Mayo just a few days away, we thought you may enjoy some fun crafts, snacks, and activities to help you and your kids or classroom celebrate!  And what do paper bugs have to do with Cinco de Mayo?  Make them in fiesta colors such as red, green, white, yellow, orange and purple, and use your bugs to decorate your classroom, create a mobile, or even as party favors!

Homemade Pinata
Our homemade pinata is simple to create and you're likely to have all the materials you need at home, already!  Creating a pinata with your kids is easy and fun, and can illustrating repurposing or recycling.

Noisy Shakers
Definitely a crowd-pleaser, although you may want earplugs when all is said and done, our homemade maracas or shakers, is a perfect for preschoolers, and can then be used at music time!

Construction Paper Flags
Instead of the red, white, & blue tissue paper recommended in the instructions, substitute the colors with red, white, & green to create a Mexican flag in honor of the Battle of Puebla.  (This could double as a lesson aid too!)

Cheese Tortillas
Don't forget the Cinco de Mayo themed snacks!  Try our cheese tortillas for a snack or even as part of lunch.  Your kids can even help make and bake these.

However you choose to celebrate, enjoy your Cinco de Mayo and enjoy your kids!  We love feedback and photos so be sure to send us some or post on our Facebook page!
