Arts & Crafts: Holidays > Cinco De Mayo


Mexican Flowers
added 8-18-98
Original Author Unknown

Need: Tissue paper, twist tie or pipe cleaner

Directions: Give each child 3-5 different colored squares of tissue paper and have them set the one on top of another. Show the children how to fan fold and then wrap a twist tie around the middle of the fan folded paper. Have each child carefully open his flower by pulling the different colors of paper upwards or downwards to separate each layer.


Mexican Lanterns added 8-18-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: Construction paper, crayons or markers

Directions: Give each child a piece of construction paper and allow them to decorate any way they wish. (crayons and markers) Next, have the children fold the paper in
half length wise. They should then cut 1'' cuts apart beginning at the fold but leave one 1'' border around the edges except the fold. Have the children then unfold and roll each long edge of the paper in a circle and staple. Use the hole punch to make two holes in the top, then tie a piece of string to the hole as a hanger.


Mexican Hats added 8-18-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: Construction paper, ribbon

Directions: Cut a hat shape out using construction paper. Punch holes all around. Let the child decorate & lace. If you use the ribbon that is used on balloons you won't
have to use a needle. This ribbon is inexpensive.


Make Green/ White/ Red Chains added 8-18-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: Red, white, and Green constructions paper

Directions: Cut red, white & green paper strips & let the children make chains to decorate the room.


Maracas added 8-18-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: Empty Yogurt cups w/ lids, tape, popsicle sticks, small beans

Directions: Collect empty yogurt cups that still have the lids. Decorate a festive cover which will be taped around the yogurt cup to hide the words (I have seen some classes paint their cups, but the paint sometimes starts to flake off when the kids are using them). Tape a popsicle stick to one side of the cup (masking tape seems to hold better than glue). Put about 15 to 20 small beans inside the cup and tape closed.
