Mexico Day Party Crafts for Kids

Cinco de Mayo Crafts Party for Kids

In second grade, the kids travel the globe to study Mexico, China and Ghana. It’s a wonderful social studies unit that culminates in a Mexico Day party that can also be used for a Cinco de Mayo party for kids.

Our teacher set up six stations and had parent volunteers run each station. It took about 3 hours for the party and the unit itself lasted about a month. I was in charge of the dried bean maraca craft.

The kids learned about the geography of Mexico.

By the end of the unit, they learned a lot! I liked how they asked questions throughout and found answers. It was all tracked on this chart.
