Well, after 5 parents asked me if there was an easier, EASIER being the key word to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! Common reasons are, I don’t cook, can you imagine Spanish food?? I am not crafty…..I am not good at singing, I don’t speak Spanish, the list goes on and on….so I decided to address each of the reasons given to me for not celebrating Cinco de Mayo and put together an easier guide to celebrate cinco de mayo!
I don’t cook! Well, a couple options:
Everybody that knows me, know that I am a strong advocate against fast food but we will make an exception by visiting local fast food restaurants for breakfast! My favorites: MacDonald’s Burrito
Taco Bell’s Burritos
A Fruit Salad for a nice light lunch and dinner, well, dinner, there are so many options, basically any American restaurant in the US has steak/chicken fajitas or quesadillas and flan for dessert or maybe you should try that small authentic restaurant you have been looking for! Maybe mommy and daddy can also top with a margarita! Arriba!
Not crafty??? Google local libraries and children’s museums, they are all offering special activities this Saturday.
Singing for you means bathroom time?? Well, Youtube has some great options, I blast it out with my wireless speakers on my iPad:
This one has a funny dance with it!
Cartoon time is in Spanish on Saturday! Yes, they love to watch tv, so let them!!!
Cute videos for younger ones:
Don’t speak Spanish?? No need, use some words during your family day like:
Gracias – thank you De nada – you are welcome let’s eat – vamos a comer let’s sing – vamos a cantar hi – hola bye – hasta luego
Surprise them with a new Spanish Mom!
I hope my post inspired you to try one or all suggestions, if you do, PLEASE, PLEASE, come and share??
