Prep, craft and chat
Get your kids involved in dinner prep. It’s a great time to get conversation going, learn a little about different food and ingredients and just spend time together. Homemade salsa is an easy way for kids to help contribute, and there isn’t much cooking involved -- good if you have younger kids. Let older kids chop veggies while the younger ones stir ingredients together.
If you’re really into the fun of the holiday, try this pretty craft. Tissue paper flowers are adorable and are traditional Mexican decorations used in many celebrations.
