Christmas Eve in Mexico and a Craft

Hola!

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 






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!

Pinata Craft 
(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

I love this book! We rarely get snow so in some ways our Christmas is like the one long ago. You did so many amazing things with this book.

I will be sharing it on the Read.Explore.Learn. Facebook page tomorrow.
