Celebrating Cinco De Mayo with Kids

There are so many ways of Celebrating Cinco De Mayo with Kids that create a way to learn while having a great time. Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France (at the Battle of Puebla) during the Franco-Mexican War. The day is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

Our Favorite Avocados

Avocados are always fun, especially giant squishy ones!

The glass drinking straw with an avocado decoration is adorable!

Making guacamole with kids is a super fun little cookie idea.  Simply mix together 2 avocados, 2 TBSP chopped onion, a pinch of garlic and salt and some squeezed lime.  Add tomatoes for extra fun.  Serve with tortilla chips.
