Fiesta Part II (Mexico)

After we ate, it was time to break into the piñata that we had worked so hard to create. I felt a little bummed that we were about to destroy our creation, but this is the purpose of a piñata, and I knew from the time we started making it that it would ultimately end up in the trash. 

Eliana got the first whack and Aiden followed her. The piñata was swinging fast and furiously before it came crashing to the floor and busted open. 

The Loot: Fruit Nuggets, Gum, Smarties, Chick-O-Sticks, and stencils.
Gathering the loot.

So concludes our Mexican Month. Yet another country behind us and another country added to the list of places that we want ahead of us. Someday, I hope we will narrow it down to the Top 10 and then actually go to those places, but for now we have bellies full of sugar and spice and we look eagerly forward to the next month's "destination".

Many, Many Thanks to Miss Celina for helping guide us through Mexico, we are incredibly grateful! 

* If you are looking for a great book to read to your littles we read Elena's Serenade by Campbell Geeslin. It is about a girl who lives in Mexico and wants to be a glass blower. After being told by her father that glass blowing is for boys she sets out to prove him wrong. It has a nice (easy to read and follow) mix of English and Spanish and has really nice art work.*

In case you missed them, you can check out the making of the piñata here and the decorating of the piñata here and Fiesta Part I here.
