Mexican Folk Art for Kids

It is Hispanic Heritage month. I wanted to talk about this with my kids. Having a Hispanic mother and being half Hispanic myself it is important to me to share that culture with my children.  I decided to find a fun craft for us to do and talk about our Mexican Culture around it.  We set out to make fun Mexican Folk Art and the kids loved it.  This post is part of Multicultural Kids Blog Hop.
