Fiesta Fun: How to Throw a Cinco de Mayo Celebration
With beans, cheese, and avocado, these flavorful turkey burgers are practically a full meal in a bun.
Wild-Style Mexican Hot Dogs
Serve the dogs undressed so kids (and grown-ups) can choose their favorite add-ons.
Serve these sweet slurps—part drink and part dessert—alongside or instead of margaritas. For a fun twist, freeze the blend into ice-pop molds.
Corn With Lime and Cotija
Cut cobs in half for little hands.
Pineapple Pico de Gallo
Start with a whole pineapple or precut chunks, and chop the fruit finely for the perfect salsa-to-chip ratio.
Make Shakers to Share
Craft some fun with DIY maracas. Fill leftover plastic Easter eggs with 1 tsp. popcorn kernels; snap closed. Help children hold the egg between two plastic spoons while they wrap washi tape around them to hold the egg in place and make a handle. Continue wrapping until the egg and spoons are completely covered.
Set Up a Sombrero Station
Keep little partygoers busy with craft-your-own paper sombreros. Before the party, hot-glue upsidedown paper cups to the center of paper dinner plates. Set out glue and decorating supplies, like pom-poms, mini-ball fringe, and chenille stems, and encourage the kids to style their hats.
