It's cinco de mayo and the American marketing is encouraging everyone to have a margarita today and celebrate. :)
I have many students and parents asking what exactly is cinco de mayo? No, it is not Mexican's Independance ( Sept 16), rather it is the victory of the
Battle of Puebla. Nonetheless, any chance we can celebrate this wonderful culture and give our kids another chance to learn Spanish, I think is a great reason to celebrate!
If you are like me with little ones at home, there will be no margaritas here, however some fun cinco de mayo crafts can always be a festive activity and can add bilingual fun to your day!
Here are some fun easy crafts to enjoy with your children or students.
