Cinco de Mayo
We usually have a private fiesta at my home during Cinco de Mayo or going to a Hispanic restaurant! This year, I decided to make our Cinco de Mayo more meaningful, since my son has been every day, resisting to speak Spanish and Portuguese.
I told him we will be celebrating in a different way:
I am a member of my church’s Hispanic Ministry and I offered my time to volunteer for their Cinco de Mayo party which will be this Friday and offered my son’s time on the day of, to attend and help with anything needed!
We are also now speeding our search to support a child in a country who needs comfort and love! He will be writing, sending small items and learning about that child’s struggles, life and culture, which I think, will give him a different perspective on gratitude and compassion!
We will also cook a Hispanic meal together on Sunday and make homemade pinatas!
If celebrating Cinco de Mayo is not a part of your culture or the place where you live, embrace something new this year and follow some of my suggestions to have fun with the children:
Would love to hear your suggestions! Let us know if you try some of our suggestions!
