Okay...not really! We have just finished our study on Mexico. Since we have been using My Father's World this year for homeschool, the kids are really learning alot about different countries and cultures.
During our study on Mexico, we made string art which we found out is a very BIG thing in Mexico. They do many different art projects this way. The kids had a great time creating their own masterpieces.
Another art project that we made which I do not have a picture of is sand art. The Mexican people use colored sand to make beautiful pictures. We did this, but I forgot to take pictures (gasp!) I know...I always take pictures of everything! LOL
We also made tissue paper flowers.
He always love to be such a goof for the camera!
The Mexican people use these to decorate for fiestas. Since we made the flowers, we decided that at the end of our study we would put our own fiesta on. Kayla of course is my decorator, so she took care of getting our schoolroom transformed in to our Fiesta party.
Once the decorations were hung, Kayla and I got to work preparing our Mexican feast! We made homemade tortilla chips which are sooo easy to make--use corn tortillas, cut them into triangles and then fry them--YUM!
We also made homemade salsa and guacamole. We had Chicken Tacos instead of beef and it turned out to be a really yummy meal!
Like I said...they love to make faces for the camera!
We had a great time studying Mexico! Next week, we are hopping a plane and heading to Canada! I can't wait to see what's in store when we land there!
