Introduction and Party Invitations
Forget the same old, same old! Introduce your child and the other kids to another culture by planning a Mexican-inspired birthday party.
It's an especially fun theme if your child’s birthday falls around Cinco de Mayo (May 5th), when Mexicans celebrate their country's independence from Spain. You can read up on Mexican traditions online or at the library to help plan your party.
The most important components are colorful decorations, tasty Mexican fare, and a piñata full of trinkets and treats.
Weather permitting, plan your fiesta for outdoors where kids will have plenty of room to dance and play.
Create a Mexican Flag Invitation. Using green, red, and white cardstock, make a Mexican flag on one side of your invitation and on the reverse write the fiesta party details. Alternatively, if you want to hand-deliver your party invitations, purchase small Mexican flags and attach a small card with the party details written on it to the wooden stick.
