Even so, I have chosen to participate in this celebration this year as a means to share with others the beauty of our culture as well as to commemorate diversity and promote tolerance and acceptance. Needless to say, I have chosen to do so through my crafting.
There are many ways you can use this theme to provoke important and critical conversations in your family about the influence that Hispanic/Latin cultures have had on the US. You could discuss in your family circle the possibility of
- donating to a Hispanic charity.
- instituting a weekly Hispanic food day in which you cook/eat foods from any Hispanic country.
- celebrating a Hispanic tradition that is new to your family.
- learning about an influential Hispanic who has made a positive impact on society.
Of course, you could also consider making up one of my free patterns for this month. You can find my King of Fruits Bathroom Tissue Cozy and my Coquí Taíno Wall hanging here!
