Christmas Piñata Workshop – Learn about the Spanish Spirit of Christmas

Piñatas have a long and rich history. Most people believe piñatas are a strictly Mexican tradition, however, the piñata originated in Italy during the Renaissance. In Spain, the word pignatta was changed to piñata, and the custom was given religious significance. The breaking of the piñata occurred only during Lent.

This workshop is a unique and interactive way for students of all levels to experience the Hispanic culture. Kids will be able to learn Spanish vocabulary as they make their own Christmas piñatas! All kids will take home their own pinata with candy inside.

Spanish Language Christmas Holiday Camp

According to Spanish tradition, January 6th is  “Three Kings Day”.  Spanish children wait for the arrival of Reyes Magos, the Wise Kings from the East who followed a star and came bearing gifts for Baby Jesus. Nowadays, it has become a joyous day for children to receive Christmas gifts.

In this workshop, students will exchange gifts (we suggest books or candies) and will learn simple Spanish words related to the holiday. They will also learn how to introduce themselves to the “Three Wise Kings” and describe to them what Christmas gifts they would like to receive. On the last day of the workshop, students will be guided to set goals for the new year.

Gingerbread House Making Winter 2021 Camp 

Did you know that making gingerbread houses is a traditional custom in Germany?

The history of gingerbread houses (Lebkuchenhaus) can be traced back to the 19th century where the monasteries began to hold Christmas markets, selling gingerbread cookies made by the nuns, and praying that those who at the cookies would survive the cold winter in a healthy and healthy manner. Thus, Germany is known as the “hometown of gingerbread”. As time went by, building gingerbread houses turned into a family festive event and became popular in many places around the world.

In this workshop, you will decorate your own gingerbread house together with your parents or friends. Through this fun family activity, everyone will learn more about the knowledge and history of gingerbread houses, while strengthening relationships with family members and friends and creating beautiful Christmas memories!
