A Mexican sombrero is an iconic cultural symbol that is often used in traditional celebrations and folkloric festivities. It typically has a very wide brim that provides protection from the sun and has a high pointed crown. It can be made of straw or felt, and comes in different colors, patterns and embellishments.
By using dried beans and corn, foods that are prevalent in Mexican cuisine, your child will create a three-dimensional model of a sombrero. Manipulating and gluing these small items on to paper is a great workout for youngsters’ fine motor skills. It also works on expanding your child’s attention span and focus.
