Our activities today were focused on learning through a different way. The workshop’s name Tlaoli comes from the mayans. We loved to play lottery and we learned different words in maya like “citlali” which means star or “calli” which means house. Also we played a memory game and through it we were aware of the variety of games played by our ancestors. Really amazing was to do our own toy,some really beautiful wooden butterflies with a variety of colors, we had a great time and were able to understand more of the importance of our culture. Our artisans are splendid artists very creative and sometimes we don’t appreciate the value of the “artesanias” that we have with such a variety of colors and forms


  1. I liked to play the outside game and also i liked to do my balloon, it was a balloon made with chinese paper.i also liked to player memoria and lotería .
