September is a great time to blend creativity and music with learning. Many families are going back-to-school or starting a new homeschooling year and the annual celebration of Hispanic Heritage month begins on September 15th.
We’re excited to share our new E-book with 10 crafts and activities to celebrate musical traditions from a variety of Hispanic cultures as well as the poster you see above.
These 10 activities and 5 coloring pages make a perfect introduction to the beautiful and diverse music and cultures that share Hispanic roots. The E-book includes coloring pages plus craft activities for bongo drums, castanets, rainsticks, guiros, quijadas, panpipes and much more!
