On July 6, 1907 Frida Kahlo was born.  She’s considered one of Mexico’s greatest painters, and she was well known for her self-portraits.  Her story although tragic is one of overcoming personal struggles.   She was an activist and married fellow painter Diego Rivera.   Today many celebrate her as a feminist icon.

Many of her paintings revolve around her life so I would suggest you take a look at her paintings before sharing with kids.   Luckily, I found these Spanish videos that are appropriate for kids.

** As you can see below the title on the video itself has the name spelled incorrectly but the title of the video is not **
