General Ideas for representing Costa Rica

The most famous crafts from Costa Rica are their painted ox carts. Good luck putting those together :^). But a variation could be painting pasta wheels. Use bright colors and dot with flower like designs. The country is also famous for volcanoes and beautiful birds.

Food wise, I remember corn tortillas and refried black beans. You might be able to find the refried black beans canned in a Latino market. Coffee is an important export. Little burlap bags of coffee beans would also make a good craft.
