Cinco de Mayo with a Disney Twist

Cinco de Mayo, it may come as a surprise, is not a big holiday in most of Mexico. The date recognizes a victory of a Mexican Army over a French Army, but it doesn’t usually stop schools or generate many parades, except maybe in towns near the actual battlefield.

In the United States, now that’s a whole different story. Here, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a life of its own as a sort of general celebration of Latin culture, and I embrace it and thoroughly enjoy it as such.

Accordingly, my boys and I are having a party with yummy food, crafts, and this year we’re having Cinco de Mayo with a Disney twist by inviting the Three Caballeros to our party!  I like introducing my kids to different cultures and celebrations, and Cinco de Mayo is no exception. So we’re going to do it up right.

I hope you’ll have a Cinco de Mayo party this year, too, and I encourage you to include something new, like a food you’ve never tried, a craft, or maybe even a special activity. Here are some ideas to try or to get your own creative juices flowing:
