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:
Tembleque – Puerto Rico
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 them over the tostadas and sprinkled queso fresco over them.
Mexican Street Vendor Fruit – Becky from Kid World Citizen suggested I try out Tajín on fresh fruit for a healthy alternative to 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!
We certainly kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month with a blast!
