There is a latin feeling in the air today in our home. We have arrived in Mexico, our Spanish-speaking neighbor to the south. Being so close to Mexico we also have several Mexican neighbors and friends, so this week will be a bit more familiar and we’re going to have fun with it!
While busting out our Mexican tunes, we left Lebanon on the globe and traveled south to Mexico where summer reigns and the weather is hot! The kids placed stars on Veracruz where our wonderful neighbors are from, before coloring their maps. On crayola.com I found a fun accordion-style Mexican flag that we colored and folded into an accordion fan.
Then, we finished with an edible flag….our first! Using slices of bread topped with cream cheese I made the green and red stripes with various fruits/vegetables, then sprinkled a few sunflower seeds in the middle to resemble the Eagle that is on the Mexican flag.
