Now let’s go to the fiesta! We’re going to start with the food. Since it’s a kids fiesta I wanted to go with simple, and easy “finger foods.” Something I could prep in a minute on the day of the fiesta or ahead of time. I work full-time and have very limited free time. Thankfully, I have an amazing group of multicultural moms that offered great suggestions!
So I went with these sweets, and treats:
Churros – Mexico – I didn’t make these but bought them from the local Mexican taquería.
Tostadas – Guatemala – Fellow blogger Kristen from Toddling in the Fast Lane shared with me this simple recipe for Guatemalan tostadas, and the best part is that the kids assembled them themselves! I bought corn tostadas, refried beans, and queso fresco. I warmed up the refried beans a little, and the kids spread it over the tostadas and sprinkled queso fresco over it.
Mexican Street Vendor Fruit – Becky from Kid World Citizen suggested I try out Tajín on fresh fruit for a healthy alternative to the sweets!
Tuna Spread Mini-Sandwiches I used a simple tuna spread recipe that Diana from LadydeeLG shared with me. It’s tuna and mayo with olive oil. Put all the ingredients in the blender to make it into a spread. It was delicious!
The kids truly enjoyed themselves they made Latin-inspired crafts, made their own tostadas, jammed to “AQUI, ALLA” by Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band music, and even played lotería!
