    France and Mexico

    We did a similar event throughout our Lower School last year, and the kids really enjoyed it! I was in charge of Christmas in France. We talked about the French traditions (Pere Noel, midnight mass, etc.), sang "Un Flambeau, Jeanette, Isabella," and made mini buches de noel (yule logs).

    The buches de noel were really cool and very easy to make. We covered Little Debbie Swiss cake rolls with chocolate frosting and used red hots and green frosting to make holly. Then we dusted them with powdered sugar for snow. Yum!

    Our second grade teacher did Mexico. She read the students a story about Las Posadas (I think it was "The Legend of the Poinsettia" by Tomie dePaola), taught them a song in Spanish, and let them make tamales.
