Having a Cinco de Mayo party? If people are bringing kids, be sure to have something to do. Plan a craft like making maracas from empty water bottles. Add a few dried beans or some rice to empty, dry bottle, cap them and cover with a thin layer of paper mache' which will dry quickly in the sun, or even a layer of duct or masking tape. (Kids love tape!) Then decorate as desired with Sharpie markers, stickers, beads, feathers, fringes, ribbons, or whatever. Let kids perform to a Mexican tune in a maraca band later in the evening.

Although we have a set of plastic ones that cost $1

I can see how different shapes and materials might produce a slightly different sound and be fun to make. God bless you. : )

These cute, inexpensive sombreros may great centerpieces for Cinco de Mayo (May 5) or any Mexican themed party. They are very quick and easy to make.

Instructions:

  1. Paint paper plate and Styrofoam cup with tan or yellow acrylic paint. Allow to dry.

  4. Hot glue the cup to the center of the plate to form your sombrero.

  5. Glue the pom-poms, evenly spaced, around edge of the plate. Alternate colors as you glue each one in place.
