We learned about the history of Cinco de Mayo, wrote a mini report, and had a few craftivities. Here's a picture walk of our celebration!
We started off by taking some pictures to use for our gifts. I asked each student to stand up with their arms in the air while I snapped the pictures! I promised them that we wouldn't just be giving their moms a picture of them with their arms up in the air:). They all snickered and laughed as I took their pictures. They couldn't quite figure out what they would be using the picture for.
We created our picture backgrounds by "glue painting" tissue paper to a piece of cardstock to create a collage effect.
Once the tissue was dry, we glued on their pictures with a giant heart. Pretty cute, right?! The kiddos were so excited about their gifts and couldn't wait to take them home!
We needed a cutesy card to go with our gifts, so I created this ice-cream cone card! It's pretty sweet:). The kids loved it! You can grab it for free, here.
