Continuing on with this great week of celebrating Hispanic Heritage, I decided to let the kids in on one of my favorite childhood memories-
In the search for a good YOUTUBE video I stubbled upon yet another crafty artsy activity the family could do.
This time it involved markers, eggs and Luchador Masks!
The super awesome Queen of Crafts, Kathy Cano-Murillo, Better known as The Crafty Chica created some amazing El Luchador Cascarones. In her post she shares how she created her cascarones.
Although cascarones are super fun to make and destroy, because they are filled with confetti, I decided it was probably best to just stick with a boiled egg. It was much safer for my toddlers.
Here are a few pics of how our crafty night went. Even dad made a Luchador Masked egg.
After creating these colorful eggs I explained to my little family how I had the chance to go to an actual Lucha Libre match in Tijuana, Mexico. I was about 9 years old. I stood in the stands with my family cheering on our favorite hometown luchadores. It was an awesome memory in my childhood. There I learned how much Lucha Libre is part of my Heritage. My parents share some of the same Lucha Libre memories from when they were kids also. I can’t wait to take my kids to a match next time we visit Tijuana.
*Thanks to The wonderful Crafty Chica for creating crafts that touch the heart and soul. You have put a wonderful twist to Easter egg decorating!
Happy Thursday everyone!
