Mexican cuisine is distinctively fresh and tasty, uses easy-to-grow, colourful ingredients, and can be prepared with little fuss. Mexican culture, which can be explored through this activity, is also a great one for young children as it is traditionally bright and engaging.

Equipment

What to do

  • 1. Choose an area of your garden to use as a Mexican garden, and prepare the plot.

  • 2. Plant marigolds in and around the plot. Marigolds keep mosquitos and other insects away, and also make the garden look bright and colourful.

  • 3. Plant seeds or seedlings among the garden plot, leaving enough space in between plants (check the seed or labels for instructions).

  • 4. Decorate the garden with Mexican-themed signs and labels.
