Cinco de Mayo Crafts

With   Cinco de Mayo around the corner we wanted to have fun making crafts as well as learn about the holiday. so we made a shake maker and some arm jewelry and maracas my daughter built a robot to go with it we were going to make a pinata but we figured save the best for last. For those of you who  Are not sure what Cinco de Mayo is here is a few facts people often confuse it with Mexico's Independence Day Mexico had claimed their Independence on the 16 of  September 1821 .The reason for celebrating March 5 is because that was the day Puebla Mexico won  against France in 1862 and so every year they celebrate their victory. Some of the things they do for Rituals is Parades,dancing,eating Mexican food and celebrating Mexican and Mexican-American customs Reenacting the battle Dressing in traditional clothing and decorating with the colors of Mexican flag.      Bracelet

It  would of been interesting to here some of their poetry I wonder what they had to say?  But what they say is that the earliest poems were spoken about for centuries be for they were even  written  down. But the oldest surviving poem  that is know was about the Epic Gilgamesh it is from ancient Sumer,Modern day Iraq the earliest version dates back 2000.B.C this story was about a real king .So now we know some facts maybe you can add to them are maybe you can write a poem .Did you know this month is also national poetry month that's awesome right  for me it was I enter in a poetry contest with my  local library and had my kids write poetry as well  I encour…
