Crafts with Luna & Maya: Papel Piacdo
Join us on our Facebook page for a virtual holiday craft to make your very own Papel Picado in celebration of Día de Los Muertos this weekend.
Papel Picado is a traditional Mexican craft that features colorful paper sheets with intricate cut-out details. It was made by stacking many sheets of paper and using chisels to cut the designs. You can easily make your own Papel Picado by layering sheets of tissue paper and using scissors.
EARLY FINISHER OR SUB PLAN PROJECT
This is a great free choice activity or a lesson for a sub. Laminate the instructions and place on a table. Add a tray of pre-cut tissue papers, a bowl of scissors and allow the children to create a papel picado during free-choice time.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Colored tissue paper (12 x 9 approximately)
- Yarn and Tape to display Papel Picados
This event is free and will premiere on the Center’s Facebook page on Wednesday, October 28th at 4:00 PM.
