A Taste of Mexico with Myriam Sandler from Mothercould

Nicole and Emma can’t get enough of Little Passports and have loved exploring the Little Passports World Edition box. This month is very special because we traveled to Mexico!

Mexico is the country Daddy’s family is from and one of our favorite places to visit in the whole world. Not only is it a beautiful and exciting country where we get to practice our Spanish, but what makes it truly unique is the delicious food! Going through this month’s box, I thought we could pair it with one of Mexico’s most popular food recipes—guacamole! The box included a fun DIY piñata that we used to decorate for our Mexican fiesta. ¡Estuvo muy divertido! (It was so much fun!)

As a parent, what I love most about Little Passports is the curated activities that allow us to explore the world and that inspire creative and complementary activities to extend play. The passport and country coin are always fun and interactive conversation starters. Everything is well thought out to be enjoyed in single or multiple play sessions.
