At the “Tacos to Go” kids activity, children will be hungry for the opportunity to make their own artful taco using scraps of felt and craft glue to compose. Grab a felt tortilla and pile on your favorite ingredients!
I will have small bins with already cut out felt tortillas and their potential toppings (i.e. cheese, meat, vegetables, etc.). All of the “ingredients” will be affixed with non-toxic craft glue to the felt tortilla by the kids. After they get their tacos prepared they will be supplied with a small Tacos to Go paper bag to take their felt taco home in.
