In Mexico, few holidays go by that do not feature colorful tissue paper banners strung along the streets, decorating the fronts of churches or embellishing schools and classrooms. These cut tissue paper flags are called "papel picado," which literally translates to "perforated paper." This activity will help your child discover the beautiful results that can be achieved by folding tissue paper multiple times before cutting it. She will love this artsy introduction to a fun Mexican custom!
