Papel picado making at Folklore Village


Colorful and festive, traditional papel picados are easy to make and bring great joy to the artists who make them. Kids and families will learn the history and folklore of papel picados and about the people who make them. Children will be asked to think about how their families, schools, and neighborhoods decorate for special occasions.

This workshop has a maximum participation of 25 people, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrive a little early to make sure you can make these fun papel picados!
