Nica Games, food, and crafts
Hello! I'm brand new, I've been a member for about 39 seconds, but I have a few questions. I'm teaching some children at my church about missionaries in Nicaragua, and I'm supposed to theme the entire evening around Nicaragua. I need a game, a snack, and a craft, and a little information about the culture.
For a game, I've heard that different versions of hide & seek are popular, and I've also heard of a game called macho parado, but I haven't been able to find any directions on how to play it. If you could supply not only the name, but also directions to play, that would be great.
For snack, I don't mind having to prepare something intricate, but, since it is a church event, it MUST be alchohol free. I've been told about two popular desserts in Nicaragua, but both contain rum, and I don't want to get anyone in trouble. A recipie isn't necessary, I can usually find that on google.
For a craft, anything that represents Nicaragua. When we learned about China, we did origami, we made a marraca when we learned about Mexico, so, it can be anything. I've heard that baseball is very popular, and that many kids don't have a baseball available to them, so they make one out of elctrical tape. Something like that would be perfect, I can teach them about the culture and keep them busy at the same time.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, it means much to me. Thank you!
