Celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Today is Cinco de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo means the fifth of May. It is a holiday recognizing the Mexican army’s victory over the French army on May 5, 1862. Cinco de Mayo is often celebrated in the United States and other parts of the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage, culture, and food.

Enjoy this holiday with your family by teaching your children about the origins of this holiday and the Mexican culture. The Family Fun website has put together some special activities and delicious recipes in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Kids of all ages will love the Mexican "Sushi" and the Cinnamon Crisps!
