Fiesta Style Fun Night at CMSC
The Children’s Museum of South Carolina (located at 2501 North Kings Hwy, a few miles north of The Caravelle) is having their Fiesta Style Fun Night on July 19th 2013 from 5:00-7:00 pm!
Our children are very fluent in Spanish these days. Are you familiar with the show Dora the Explorer? Educational programs like this have exposed American kids to a wonderful culture, and the Children’s Museum here in Myrtle Beach wants to continue sharing the knowledge of one of our growing ethnic groups. In fact, according to a recent fact sheet from Ohio State University, Hispanics make up about 11% of the United States’ population, meaning that there are roughly 31 million Hispanic citizens!
Have you ever noticed the music makers often seen at Hispanic celebrations that resemble big rattles? These beautiful instruments that are usually painted with historical, colorful designs are called Maracas, or “Rumba Shakers” (you can see a picture of a nice set of them here). Your kids will enjoy making their own at the Children’s Museum that evening.
Remember the dance the Macarena? It was a Spanish dance song performed by a duo called Los Del Rio in 1995. In 2002, VH1 labeled them the Greatest One Hit Wonder of All Time! This song still gets everyone on their feet and moving in 2013, and you can definitely expect to see the kids who visit the museum on the 19th boogying to this fun hit that has a popular and cool dance step to go with it.
The best thing about this kid friendly event is that it’s only $1 for children over 2! Come with your kids to Fiesta Style Fun Night to learn, dance, and create!
