Need some more Fiesta Fun Ideas? Here they are listed below from when I perform at children’s birthday parties.
Fiesta Time with Boca Beth
Based on the age of children in attendance Boca Beth recommends the following:
Salsa and chips.
Big Fritos with sour cream, chili & cheese and/or guacamole for dipping.
Make your own taco station complete with meats (chicken or beef), tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, taco sauce and shells.
Flan, dulce de leche ice cream, Tres Leches cake (available in many flaors these days) or galletas/cookies from a local Spanish grocery store.
Have the children make their own Mexican ponchos out of large brown grocery bags with paints, sequins, beads, feathers, foam shapes, etc to decorate.
Maracas can easily be made with two paper plates stapled together (adult supervision required), popsicle stick as the handle and rice, pasta or beans as the noise filler – children decorate the outside of the plates prior to assembly.
MUSIC & GAMES
Guessing Cup Game (PreK – elementary) This can be played with three non-see-through cups placed upside down over three individual objects (a blue, a red and a green plastic fruit from the kids’ play kitchen at home for example). Play the color song from “My First Songs in Spanish” Boca Beth CD first to have fun playing and learning about Spanish words for colors.
After the song draw their attention to the cups and have the children sit nicely around the game area so that all children can see the cups as you mix them around for a few seconds quickly asking them to keep their eye on red (or blue or green) – trying to trick the kids. Then ask for a volunteer to raise their hand to pick where red is. Play again and again! Award birthday party favors as prizes for correct guesses.
