For Teachers

  • PBS: Latino Americans

Maker Activities

  • How To Make Paper Fiesta Flowers For Hanging
    Here are step-by-step directions with photos to help you make decorative paper flower pom-poms which can be hung on a string, from the ceiling, on tree branches or wherever you like!
  • Make Your Own Pinata
    Use some things you already have around the house and some crepe paper streamers to make your own pinata.

    And the best part? There is no paper mâché involved! No waiting for days while layers of soggy tissue paper try to dry in humid summer weather.

    In fact, you can whip one of these up in an evening!
  • Worry Dolls
    Guatemalan worry dolls were made by adults for their children to tell their worries too. Children used to put them under their pillows at night and the doll, and their worries, were gone in the morning (removed by parents when they slept).
    Telling your worries to someone always helps, but what if there is no one around when you need them, or you just can’t tell anyone that worry just yet? Use these easy to follow instructions on how to make a worry doll, then you’ll always have someone to share your worries with.
