Cooperate and Pack a Primavera Picnic! - Behind Mi Legasi's April Bilingual Box

by Janny Perez April 11, 2018

It's Primavera!  Spring has arrived, although if you live anywhere along the east coast you know that Spring has really not arrived for us.  For April we wanted to focus on cooperation and letting the whole family join in on the picnic planning. I'm so happy to share with you a closer look at our April Box.  It was so much fun to put together.  Let's see how we helped mamás and familias Connect & Create so they can Carry on their spring traditions.

Book: Freda Organiza una Merienda

Written by Stuart J. Murphy, this is a great book that will teach your child about sequencing and how they can cooperate and pack and unpack a picnic.  Read more about the effectiveness of visual learning here. This is Victoria's favorite new book.  She especially loves the call out picture boxes and I like the questions at the back to make it more interactive. Want to teach your child about cooperation?  Check out this similar title:

Eat, Drink and ¡Vive! Go Everywhere Tote For Mom

Because you need a bag for your picnic and we've got you covered.  Our exclusive heavyweight tote bag can be used for just about any occasion.  I'm proud to sport mine around NYC because life's too short...Vive!  I can also tell you I get alot smiles when I sport this bag.

Create a Picnic Sticker Scene

My daughter loved creating her very own picnic scene and I loved how simple and easy it was.  I made sure to promote healthy eating habits by helping Victoria put together a healthy picnic and leaving fast foods out.  As a busy working mom I like easy activities that still educate and can enhance my daughter's creative and fine motor skills without taking a whole afternoon!

Good Lunch Cactus Box

We included this trendy sandwich and snack box from Sugarbooger as a way to teach kids about cooperation as they help you by packing their own snacks.  Features a divider and a convenient attached lid so you don't have to worry about another lost lid!  Like this item?  Check out our similar additions in our Kid Shop.

Mom & Me Picnic Shopping List & Primavera Picnic Helper

We wanted to encourage your child to help you shop for your picnic with their very own list in Español and we tossed a master list for you mama or to get the older kids involved. I have to say Victoria absolutely LOVED doing this activity at the grocery store.  Now every time we go to any store, she asks for her list.  Like the activity but missed the box?  Now you can download it here and print at home.

What's on your Plate & Nuestra Cultura Coloring Activities.

What's on your plate teaches kids about the different food groups in Español and creates an opportunity for you as a parent to inspire a balanced meal.  Our Nuestra Cultura activity focused on fruits prevalent in Latin America.  Like these activities?  You can download them here and print them at home.

6 Hispanic- Latino Birthday Traditions To Pass Down

My little girl turned 3 on March 27.  We had been celebrating for what seemed like for a month.  Birthdays have always been very special events growing up Latina in Miami.  We adopted Colombian traditions, mixed with Cuban traditions (it was Miami), mixed with American traditions and created our own.  But it got me thinking, how do other Latin countries celebrate birthdays and what do we all have in common?
