Christmas Eve in Mexico and a Craft
It's Christmas Eve here at The Joys Of Home Educating....Mexico Style!
We started out the day finishing up some fun worksheets about Mexico.
So cute. Sammie loved this. She colored it and I cut it out for her.
A few Mexico Themed word searches for the older two.
Then started our Christmas Eve teachings!
I loved this two page worksheet from Education.com
Filled in our Christmas Around the World worksheet
After some of the technical stuff...we got down to party business!
Time for Christmas Eve Festivities!
Little Mexicana Music to help set the mood!
(found idea HERE)
Gathered our supplies
Filled them up
Taped them together
Time to decorate our Pinatas
(I strung the string thru one cup before they filled and taped together)
What we read...
We put out the newest Nativity that the girls painted this year.
On Christmas Eve the Baby Jesus and the Wise Men are not present. It's not until tomorrow morning (Christmas Day) when he will appear (as Sammie said DUH mom.) The three Wise Men will come on January 6th (Three Kings Day)
This is "Chewy" our newest classmate.
Molly said he is Mexican so he joined us 8)
We also had some fresh baked cookies for snack
(eaten too quickly to get a picture).
We have so enjoyed learning about Mexico this week!
Tomorrow - Fiesta!
Until then - Adios
