Simplified approach to "papel picado": Third graders created brilliant tissue paper banners as part of their study of Mexican art. A rainbow of authentic Mexican papel picados was strung above the chalkboard. We noted the variety of shapes that pierced each piece. Students folded a large sheet of tissue 4 times, and then cut interesting shapes from the sides, bottom, and along the folds. For Mexican theme art activities.
