Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5th every year.
A little back story…
It is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.
Although most of us (especially here in the US) don’t celebrate for the actual reason for the holiday, it does give us the perfect opportunity to teach our children about Mexican culture.
What better way to do that than through creating fun and easy kid-friendly crafts and recipes.
Today I am sharing with you 12 of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them!
