A few fun crafts to celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is May 5, and today I’m revisiting several colorful Cinco de Mayo crafts I first shared a few years ago. I did just a bit of research about Cinco de Mayo and did you know it’s celebrated more in the U.S. than in Mexico? It’s primarily a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture, so anyone and everyone can partake of a little fun next Monday. (And I also learned that Cinco de Mayo means “the fifth of May”.) I have a little giveaway news, too.

    What fun bright colors those Cinco de Mayo flowers are. I will have to see if we can make a May Day bouquet for a special neighbor. Have a great week.

      I hope you have a great week, too, Lisa. It’s a rainy one here, but at least it’s not snow. And there are a few bright colors starting to show up in the garden, hooray! Happy May Day to you! Sharon

    Oh, I adore those tussy mussies! I remember as a child hanging flowers on a neighbor’s door for May Day. Seems like one of those traditions that is dying out, unfortunately.

      What sweet memories! Perhaps you can resurrect the tradition and surprise a neighbor? Let me know if you do. Thanks for stopping in. Sharon
