National Hispanic American Heritage Month is observed annually from September 15 to October 15. To honor this occasion, our friends at YMCA Project Cornerstone have provided a list of family-friendly enrichment activities to help you dance, play, and create your way through the month and perhaps learn a few new things about a heritage rich with culture and tradition.

 

Dance

Join the Hispanic Heritage fiesta on Sesame Street by learning to dance the flamenco, learning Hispanic foods that start with the letter P, and rhyming Spanish words with Mando.

 

Play

Together a little boy and his grandma discover a world of language and realize that loved ones have special ways of understanding each other.

Download your own board and cards to play
