Hispanic Heritage Month is here and certainly not how we expected. The days of attending parades, large patriotic fiestas, or festivals are gone...for now. However, that shouldn't be an excuse to not expose children to the many different countries and cultures with rich history. If any of them happen to be a part of your heritage, then it's more of a reason to expose your kids so they can get a glimpse into their family history.
I know we're all overloaded with information, to dos, and frankly, who wants another item on their to do list? Lucky for you, I found some great events and exhibitions that can help you celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, right in the comfort of your home, virtually.
From libraries, museums, and cultural centers, we have a list to cater to everyone's likes and needs. Here is a list of the best ones we found that are hosting virtual events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month including interviews with children's authors, craft events, music, art exhibits, storytime, and more.

As you can see, there are many ways that we can celebrate Latino Heritage with our kids. I suggest to take afew minutes, see what events spark your family's interests and book them in your phone calendar or set reminders so you don't miss them. While, you may not be able to participate in all of them, take time do at least 1 event per week soo your kids can see it is an important part of their lives. Happy celebrating!
