Look at images of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), celebrated from 31st October – 2nd November. Use a range of materials to create a 3-D Day of the Dead skull. Paint with a range of beautiful patterns and bright colours. If you don't have the resources you can sketch it instead.

 

 

Note: Día de los Muertos is similar to All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, in western Christian rituals.

 

Read a range of recipes for traditional and contemporary Mexican fruit drinks and choose one to make. Make a shopping list for the ingredients needed. Write their own instructions and then follow them to make fruit punches. Enjoy tasting the drinks, discussing and evaluating which drinks they prefer and why. Suggest changes to ingredients they did not like in order to improve their punches. No Mexican party is complete without a refreshing drink!

Work with an adult to follow recipes and cook a range of savoury Mexican dishes. Make chilli, tacos, refried beans, tortillas, guacamole and burritos! Yum! 

Note: Think about measures of ingredients and the timings of different dishes. Perhaps the you could set up a Mexican street food stall, allowing members of your household to try your food.
Remember to wash hands before and after handling food.
