Icy Treats During Semana Santa

Icy Treats During Semana Santa CIY Poster Frame

Remember that first ice cream cone of the summer? Families in Mexico celebrate the beginning of ice cream season during Semana Santa, the weeks before and after Easter.

Steps:

1

1 In Mexico, ice cream stands and frozen fruit ice vendors line the streets to sell their refreshing snacks during the week before Easter called Semana Santa. These small stands, often homemade, are shaped like outdoor water wells. They are decorated with paper cut-outs of palms, flowers, and fruit. The stands are filled with delicious frozen treats. Here’s a way to recreate the fun!

2 Use a paper cup as the base of your well-shaped stand. To make the supports for your roof, glue two craft sticks to the side of well. Air-dry the roof supports.

3

3 Form the roof by cutting a paper rectangle a little wider than the space between the craft sticks. Fold to create a roof. Glue it on top of the craft sticks. Air-dry the glue.

4

4 Cut out decorative paper palm fronds, fruits, and other designs. Bananas, mangoes, and oranges are all fruits that are made into frozen ice treats. Color the fruit with Crayola Gel Markers. Glue your fruits to the stand. Air-dry the glue.
