Let’s Party Like It’s Cinco De Mayo

Cinco De Mayo is an annual celebration of  when the Mexican Army’s defeated the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This is a great day to make some super cute crafts and snacks with the kids that will fit any type of fiesta that you may have.

  • Sombrero and Maracas

Who doesn’t love a cute sombrero with some fun maracas?!?  The maracas are made with leftover Easter eggs. Fill the eggs with some rice. Tape together 2 plastic spoons with colorful tape and tape the egg onto the spoons. You can use different colors/patterns of tape to make your fiesta even more fun. The Sombrero is a simple plate with cup glued to it. You can add cute pom pom balls, markers, glitter etc. to decorate the sombrero.

What You Will Need:

• Paper cones
• Small candy/stickers/etc. . .
• Hot glue gun and glue
• Scissors
• Ribbon
• Crepe paper or streamers

  • Cut a strip of ribbon and tie a knot at one end. Thread the ribbon through the botton of one of the cones with the knot on the inside of the cone. This will allow you to hang the finished pinata.
  • Fill that same cone with several treats. Along the top edge of the cone use hot glue and then carefully place a second paper cone over the top to create the pinata
  • To decorate, place hot glue around the two cones and use the crepe paper to hide the seam.
