MDC’s Koubek Center Launches Bilingual Family Series

Playtime provides parents an engaging (and free) way for their children to learn and practice Spanish. The fun and interactive family days will highlight the diverse arts, crafts, literary histories, and music and dance of the city’s many Hispanic cultures. Children will be invited to sing, dance, create and speak together en español.Just in time for Halloween, the series begins with a festive bang—a Dia de los Muertos celebration. Dia de los muertos – Day of the Dead – is a popular Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Latin America that honors the dead. With help from The Puppet Network, Ameyal Cultural Center, and the Mexican Cultural Institute in Miami, activities will include a puppet parade; thematic face painting and craft making (skull masks and papel picado: paper decorated with cut-outs); live Mexican folkloric music and dance performances and storytelling; an ofrenda (Day of the Dead altar) exhibit; a musical instrument petting zoo and more! Mexican food will be available for purchase.

The Playtime series will continue on Nov. 12 with Aventuras de Don Quixote (Adventures of Don Quixote). For more info visit: www.koubekcenter.org
