Libraries in English and Spanish
Books in English and Spanish will draw native speakers to the Conversation Club, creating new ways to network among all involved.

Fresh Fruit Popsicles

Called "bolis," these plastic bags are filled with fruit in season (plentiful year-round in Nayarit), with water and sugar added. They are very popular with the kids and staff. Why couldn't kids make and sell them for a few extra pesos? It would take arranging, but there have been 20 kids in this casita before, plus 15 adults. A project would organize all that energy. Everything needed is on site.
Fridge + Blender = Yum!

So many Possibilities
