When it comes to kids craft projects, we like to keep our crafts along educational lines. Cinco de Mayo is a big holiday in Texas, even among those of non-Hispanic origin.

Most Texans use this day as a fun way to celebrate the culture of Mexican immigrants and it ends up as a fun bonding experience between Texans of Mexican origan and Texans of other origins.

Even kids get in on the holiday with fun Cinco de Mayo learning activities and Cinco de Mayo crafts.

These fun crafts will allow children to celebrate the culture of Mexico whether it is their native culture or not.
