Learning About Mexico
Welcome to the 5 Days of Homeschool... Blog Hop. This week, some of my fellow Homeschool Review Crew Crew Mates and I are taking the time to share different topics related to homeschooling.
The following pages are our John 3:16 page and our flag page for Mexico from My Father's World Exploring Countries and Cultures.
When it came time to do the next layer, I decided to have the children line up to take turns, instead of passing the balloon and flour paste mixture around the table. It was a lot less messy this way.
Here is our finished pinata. Though I have to confess. We didn't finish it for our fiesta. We finished it a few days later for Thanksgiving.
We took colorful sheets of tissue paper and cut them in half.
Then we accordion folded the paper.
It was then cut in half again. This will make two flowers.
We snipped small lengths of green chenille stems (pipe cleaners) to help hold the flowers together.
Then we took the sheets of paper and gently separated them, puffing them up at the same time.
For our fiesta, we made simple tacos. See how we used the flowers to decorate for our fiesta?
I found a video of Mexican music on YouTube for us to listen to while we ate.
