They feature Speekee (a cute, purple lemur) and a couple other animal puppets, Jim (the company’s co-founder),Read More ...

Fun With DIY Piñatas {Printable Activity}

Begin this activity by reading the children’s book El Piñatero/ The Piñata Maker by George Acona. Piñatas are found at almost every Mexican celebration. Traditionally they were in the shape of a six-pointed star and were filled with fruit, candy, and small toys.
