Product Description
In Mexico, cut tissue paper or papel picado is a traditional decoration for Cinco de Mayo, the Day of the Dead, national holidays, weddings, funerals, and many other celebrations. These festive, brightly colored sheaths of paper hang from banners strung along balconies, across streets and buildings, homes, and squares.

In this activity, students create papel picado banners using colored tissue paper. This is a good activity for the art room, for holiday units, or to complement Spanish language and culture classes.
