September always marks a lot of things. And we are waiting for it. We all are so busy, your kids are heading back to school, we’re back to work, back to schedules and life. This month also marks the beginning of the fall season and Hispanic Heritage Month. So many museums, exhibits, events, and more appear everywhere to educate and celebrate Latino culture. The beautiful thing is that it doesn’t celebrate just one culture, it celebrates all Hispanics and their heritage.
9 Fun Crafts to Celebrate Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month 2020
It’s a perfect time to get our toddlers involved or start educating them about their heritage and their culture. No worry anymore due to being cooped up inside, we don’t even need to leave home to do so. Spark their interest at home by creating fun and easy crafts and then lead them to a discussion about who they are and where they came from. Here, the simplest and fun crafts we can create to celebrate Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month.
1. Mexican Pottery
It perhaps some of us know nothing about pottery painting and firing in a kiln, but this Mexican pottery is a must for this important event. They are so very beautiful that I thought it should be included for the crafters that do know about such stuff.
2. Egg Maracas
The kiddos will have a blast playing with maracas that they’ve made themselves. All you need to make this craft including plastic easter eggs, plastic spoons, white tape, markers, popcorn kernels (we can substitute popcorn for rice, beans, or lentils for different shaking sounds).
3. Small Folk Art Paisley Chickens
Paisley kitchen is also Mexican art. They have beautiful bright colors that certainly give them the “look”. Kids will like the colorful look. This small folk art could be one of the most fun Hispanic decorations.
4. Paper Fun Garland
We all surely like these tissue paper fan garland! Not only is it perfect for decorating for Cinco de Mayo, but it is also very appropriate for a wedding, baby, and party decorations.
5. Pinata Napkin Ring
We can dress up our party table with this pretty napkin. Feel free to choose the color, we can also mix with other colors to get a colorful look. They are easy to make, plus inexpensive.
6. Cardboard Birds
Your kids can’t wait to make these cardboard birds with their sister. These projects really customize to make it your own. Recycle cardboard birds are perfect for Hispanic art.
7. Pinata Wreaths
Do you notice that this wreath made using tissue paper? It’s wrong when you look closer, they are made using felt pieces. Making a pinata party wreath like this one is easy. Involve kiddos to make it.
8. Cactus Decor
This is also Mexican Must art we can create. It is easy to make and affordable, too. We can make them in different sizes. Make this craft with a group of our kids if it’s possible.
9. Yarn Arts
Yarn art is one of a nice classroom project. Since we’re hunkered down at home, then it’s time to transform our corner space into a classroom. Then, involve the kids to make these yarn arts.
