Here are the contents of a wonderful package that we received from Mexico.
First is a lovely letter with information of the kids in the family and the mexican traditions. It also included a package list and explanation on the contents of the package. They also sent us a CD with some lovely Spanish songs! Great idea! You can also see a Mexican Corn recipe pictured.
A nice color map of Mexico showing the various states.
A rosary and some pictures of Mary. In the letter is an explanation of how important this is to Mexicans.
Some pictures of Calaveras (halloween equivalent for Mexicans) and a Skull coloring page.
A toy Maraca, the Mexican flag and a wooden butterfly to represent the Monarch migration to Mexico. Also included was a Poinsettia and an interesting legend about that from Mexico!
Candies, suckers, gum and powder to make a drink. Included were some common Spanish phrases (another wonderful idea!). You can also see a Mexican coin included.
There was so much in this package that I learnt "new" about Mexico!
