Tis the season for all things pumpkin!
Are you looking for a simple but fun class treat or party craft for kids? Here are three easy pumpkin (calabaza) crafts to get you into the Harvest or Halloween mood!
Is it a calabaza or a zapallo? In Mexico, we say calabaza but when I first arrived to Ecuador and visited the mercado the lady looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for a calabaza. So like a little toddler I described to her in the best way that I could what a calabaza was. She said “ahhh, zapallo.” By the time I left the market I was thoroughly confused on what to call my favorite Fall food. Some claimed it was zapallo, others said it was calabaza.
So on to the calabaza crafts!
