Sweet Merienda Moments DIY #FunSizeMerienda #CollectiveBias #ad

For those who are foreign to the Merienda term,  is a specific time of day where we shared with family some quality and use it to make it more educational and to connect with our kids and have some necessary dialogues enjoying a delicious merienda, coffee, tea, soda or other.
In the Latino culture this is very common, and it is a tradition that is passed from generation to generation.
For me, living in the United States, it has been even more important that my children learn and continue with these traditions.
In Costa Rica, we meet at 3 pm at the home of a family member, to eat, drink coffee and share with the family, is a way to have some conversations with our grandparents and Lear even more about what life was for them in the early years, it takes us about an hour or until the bread is finished.
In my house as my daughters do not drink coffee, I created a different way of sharing this moment of the day, which is to incorporate a craft they want to do.

In this case we made a DYI Merienda schedule for the back to school, and we incorporated this idea using Fun Size MARS Chocolates. Because everything is better with chocolate.

materials #FunSizeMerienda

This is the list of materials you need:

  • Markers
  • 2 Sheets of Construction paper (white)
  • Glue
  • 10 Mini Springs
  • Candy
  • Stickers

This is very simple, is a craft for the kids to use their imagination so let them be very creative. With the markers write the days of the week, do not include the weekend, divide each column, them add glue to place the springs in each column, and let them pick the candy to add to the schedule. They can use stickers just to place the first letter of the day of the week. Very important to add their name and if they want make some decorations.

Craft #FunSizeMerienda

What I love of this craft is the we spend a lot of time together and at the same time eat some chocolate, specially the Fun Size MARS Chocolates; These chocolates are perfect for any time of the day but special for a sweet merienda moment.
You can find MARS chocolates at your local Walmart  and to make it easy here are some pictures for you to know the aisle where is located.
