Cinco de Mayo Craft for Kids

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, on May 5, children at Queens Libraries at Steinway and Sunnyside made a unique craft project: "ojos de Dios" (translated: God’s eyes) ornaments. Cinco de Mayo--a chance for us all to celebrate Mexican culture, freedom and democracy--originated in the Mexican state of Puebla and is a holiday that symbolizes pride in Mexico and its people. Keeping with our theme of creating environmentally-friendly crafts, we used old popsicle sticks and leftover yarn to create these beautiful ornaments (pictured here).
