Use this activity set at home, school or with friends to learn about the commonalities that exist between Mexico and India.

  • Create a scavenger hunt at home or at the grocery market to find common foods and spices and learn what they are called in Spanish and English.
  • Create labels for your spice rack to learn what the words are in Spanish and/or Hindi.
  • Make authentic Mexican and Indian dishes with the spices or create your own fusion.
  • Make your own paper crepe marigolds to celebrate festivals in each culture.
  • Meet people and make new friends with those who have cultural ties to either country.

Think Bilingual Austin will be hosting these activities and more at SFC Sunset Valley Farmers’ Market on October 6 from 9 am – 1 pm and at Hope Farmers’ Market on October 18 from 11 am – 3 pm.
