Looking for daily inspiration and ideas for things to do with kids this week? From at-home family fun, to winter…
Cinco De Mayo celebrates Mexican-American heritage and falls on Taco Tuesday this year. We’re bummed we can’t celebrate in Southwest Detroit but look forward to supporting the local restaurants and businesses in Mexicantown when the crisis is over. In the meantime, here are some fun ways to celebrate at home.
- Make a donkey pinata or a mini tissue roll one
- Play futbol (aka soccer) in the backyard
- Listen to a Cinco De Mayo playlist on Spotify
- Make music with homemade maracas
- Read about 11 Latinas who made US history in Be Bold! Be Brave by Naibe Reynoso
- Learn Spanish with the Duolingo app for kids
- Watch Disney’s Coco
- Make Frida Kahlo Inspired Floral Headband
- Decorate with tissue paper tassels
- Print and play Lotería
All parties require good food. Here are recipes for a family fiesta that everyone will love.
- Sweet Potato + Black Bean Tacos
- Mexican Street Tacos
- Chicken Tacos
- Watermelon Margaritas – for parents + kids
- Mexican Paletas
