Perfect for all ages, this printable activity is so easy to understand.

This is so unique because each name combines a texture, a food item, and an additional characteristic to create a unique dish! 

If the kids (or adults!) haven't heard of any of the items, it's a great opportunity to look them up and learn more about the culture and cuisine! 

Some of the foods make perfect sense - but others can be quite hilarious! That makes this a fun game that can break the ice and have everyone laughing - which is what you want for your event!

2- Cinco de Mayo Anagram Race

The first game you can play at a Cinco de Mayo party is an anagram race!

This is such a fun game that people of all ages can enjoy.

Set a timer and have guests break down a larger word or phrase into as many smaller words as they can.

You can make it easier or harder by adjusting the length of time or the requirements.

For example, you can encourage guests to create words related to Cinco de Mayo or Mexican heritage exclusively to make things more challenging.

3- Pass The Prize

Pass the prize is another fun game you can play at your Cinco de Mayo party.

You'll need a small gift to pass around.

Usually, something small, like a gift card, works great for adults. If there are children at your party, you can choose a small toy or treat.

Start by gathering all the guests in a circle, reading the poem, and instructing where the gift goes around the room.

For example, if the poem says to pass the gift to the tallest person, the gift goes to that person!

Whoever holds the gift by the poem's end must keep the prize!

It's simple but a great icebreaker to encourage guests to mix, mingle, and have a great time!

4- Tequila Trivia Game

Next, you can test guests' knowledge of tequila with a fun and engaging trivia game. Prepare a list of questions, ranging from basic to more challenging, about the history, production, and flavors of different types of tequila.

You can make this trivia as complex or easy as you'd like, but I find simple true or false trivia questions best for these types of events.

I've created a short and sweet true/false tequila trivia game to make things easy for you!

It's so interesting!

Guests take a few minutes to circle their answers, and then after the quiz is over, you can read the results along with interesting facts on the answer sheet.
