International Doll of the Month: Mexico

The International Doll of the Month for May 2012 represents Mexico.  Natalia’s mom gave a special presentation on Mexico for our students.  Take a look at the photos below.

We’re lucky that Texas is so close to this month’s featured country, so there are many family-friendly opportunities to explore Mexico:

1) Visit a Mexican Bakery

El Bolillo is a favorite Mexican Bakery in Houston, serving delicious pasteles, conches, and empanadas.  Of course, there are many other Mexican bakeries in Houston too!  Search for more on Yelp.com

2) Explore a Mexican Village at the Houston Children’s Museum

The Houston Children’s Museum offers a hands-on exhibit, where children can explore the day to day lives of citizens  in Villa Hidalgo Yalálag, a Zapotec village located in the Sierra Juárez Mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico.  Take a look: http://www.cmhouston.org/yalalag/
