Hispanic Heritage Craft: Papel Picado
Program Type:Arts, Culture, & Literature
Age Group:School Age (ages 6-11)
In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Bachman Lake staff will provide a fun craft to our local children and a lesson on its cultural significance every week.
This week our craft will be papel picado, a traditional Mexican craft made with perforated tissue paper to make various designs. They're used in decorations for various holidays, including weddings, quinceaneras, birthdays, and the Day of the Dead.
