Feliz Navidad Tambourine Craft and Fine Motor Skills

La Parranda is a Christmas tradition in Puerto Rico in which musicians visit the homes of neighbors to sing and share food in celebration. Children can act out their own musical Christmas procession with these homemade Feliz Navidad tambourines.
