It’s Hispanic Heritage Month, and I have a treat for you! Looking for easy South American crafts for kids?  Here you’ll find Hispanic-inspired crafts for kids from countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain!  With 50+ kids’ crafts, you’re sure to find a favorite for your kids to make. It’s a great way to learn about each country.

Engaging kids in making Hispanic heritage crafts during Hispanic Heritage Month or any other time, is a wonderful way to celebrate the diversity of Hispanic cultural roots while having fun together. These activities help children learn about traditions, stories, and the vibrant customs of Hispanic cultures in a hands-on way. Crafting with students has always been the most fun way to teach them about different countries culture and heritage. By making these crafts, kids will create lasting memories and develop important skills along the way.   You can display them in your classroom, wall or bulletin board.

As a proud Latina, Hispanic Heritage Month is really the one-time we get to show-off our heritage and culture.  It’s especially important to also show our kids and students the beauty in other countries like Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay y Venezuela. Unfortunately, I do not have any kids’ craft from Paraguay, and Nicaragua. If you do, please feel free to share it with me in the comments, and I will update this post with the link.
