Make an Aztec Inspired Mosaic Plate
Central Mexico was once home to the ethnic Aztec people who spoke a language called Nahuatl. They worshipped many gods and goddesses who were believed to control various life elements such as weather and agriculture. Mosaics, including masks, were common within Aztec art, often made of turquoise, coral and shells. To pay tribute to this ancient Mexican culture, your child can craft a colorful mosaic using old magazines, a paper plate and lots of imagination.
