This Elena of Avalor DIY for Mateo’s Tamborita is easy to make and perfect for an Elena of Avalor party activity. Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sponsoring this post.
Has Elena of Avalor made her way into your child’s heart? Kayla quickly fell in love with Elena so we made this Elena of Avalor DIY project. As a parent, I appreciate that Elena’s story is full of Latino culture. So not only is she a charismatic female role model, but she introduces Kayla to a culture different than her own. Diversity in my friends is something I am proud of and strengthened by. Now more than ever it’s crucial that our children learn to embrace and respect the culture and heritage of others as they would want others to do with their own.
When I think about the future and what matters to me as a mother, I am less focused on traditional societal success markers. I don’t care if Kayla grows up to be a doctor, lawyer or president nearly as much as I care about her growing up to be culturally aware, compassionate, brave woman.
