Cinco de Mayo on Planet Smarty PantsIn early April, we went on a cruise to Mexican Riviera. It was an excellent opportunity for our 7 year old to see our Southern neighbor up close, and she enjoyed the sightseeing, shopping at Mercados set up with the goal to get tourists part with some of their cash, and attending a special performance of folklore dancers and mariachi band. We extended the Mexico theme all the way to May:
Mexico Books for Kids
Building mini adobe mud bricks and comparing which bricks are stronger
Making Mexican food at home – Fiesta Lime Chicken and Mexican Brownies
Ideas from After School Participants1. Schooling a Monkey also shares books about Mexico, she is focusing specifically on Cinco de Mayo.
2. JDaniel4’s Mom has a fun Taco game that has a little bit of math built into it.
3. The Educators’ Spin On It made Mexican fish emplanadas on their journey around the world in 12 Dishes.
