Awesome Ways to Make Cinco de Mayo for Kids Fun
When my boys and I were chatting about fun holidays to celebrate in our homeschool, Cinco de Mayo came up. We’ve read about this celebration before but never did any activities or crafts. So, this Mexican holiday got added to our list!
Professor’s birthday is May 3, only two days before the official celebration of Cinco de Mayo (May 5th). The boys and I decided that we’ll just extend the party a bit longer this year 😉
To make our celebration special, the boys and I will be reading some books, doing a craft or two, and watching a video. Plus, I created free Cinco de Mayo printables (coloring pages and word puzzles) for bonus learning fun (scroll to the bottom of the post to find out how to get your free printable pack!).
