Let's celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a big and colorful tissue paper flower. 

You can use one color or  mix colors together - it's all up to you. Have fun!

Why do Mexican people use paper flowers instead of real flowers? No one iknows how the tradition of paper flowers began in Mexico, but it is thought that Spanish settlers brought tissue paper (papel de chino) from China. It is believed that paper flowers were used to decorate churches during the winter when flowers were less available.

Included materials:

  • 4-6 Colorful tissue paper sheets
  • Green pipe cleaners
