Travel around the world on this
season of Hands On Crafts for Kids. We’re visiting a
different country each episode and learning about their
culture and traditions through crafts. Every project has
5 steps and 5 main ingredients plus you’ll want to keep
basic supplies like scissors, markers, toothpicks and
rulers on hand. Remember – be creative – it’s fine to
change colors or patterns to make your project your own.
Mexico is a North American country
located south of the United States in Central America.
It has a range of climates from tropical rain forests to
dry mountains. Our crafts feature traditional designs
and lots of color.
The first craft is called huichol
– or bead ware – we create a simple version of this
craft. Then it’s time for the ojo dias. Using sticks and
yarn we create a traditional gods eye pattern. Then we
create Banderos or cut paper banners. Finally, it’s
beautiful paper blooms in every color of the rainbow.
