Cinco De Mayo
Happy Cinco de Mayo week! I love celebrating my country with you, friends!
I wanted to share this really easy craft that you can make with your kids to add some color to your life this week.
We are going to string these in our living room and make yummy Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos. I don’t know if it’s just my kids, but my children love a “festive” meal, even small touches, like decorations, get them excited.
Sometimes, I let them set the ambiance, and it’s interesting what they add as centerpieces. We’ve had pirate swords, legos, and candles set out before as table centerpieces by my boys.

You only need a couple of supplies to make these beautiful Mexican Tissue Paper Flowers!
- tissue paper
Tissue Paper Craft
1. Fold tissue paper in half or cut between 5-8 sheets into rectangles.
2. Then, fold them like an accordion. Staple them together in the middle.
4. Start pulling each single sheet up from one half (it doesn’t matter on what side you start) and then do the other half.
5. Each half will meet in the middle to create the crinkled flower look.
The great thing about doing this craft with kids, is that it doesn’t matter if their paper gets all crinkled and smashed. It will still look like a flower at the end!
Make 8 of them and place them on some string. Or, you can attach them to pipe cleaners, and display them in a vase. However you use them, they will beautify you area!
