    I have a fiesta were we do crafts at centers. We do paper flowers, God's Eyes, clay pots out of modeling clay, confetti eggs, dolls and have mexican food and music.

    Confetti eggs-use eggs with hole where you take out the insides. Stuff the egg with confetti tape hole with masking tape and paint. The eggs are used at parties to break over the guests heads.

    Corn husk Dolls (my way) cut a lunch bag in half length wise and use the cut part to make the arms by stapleing to the bag just below the fold. (like a cross) Use yarn material scrapes to make hair , sarapes and markers for facial features.

    I make sarapes out of paper bags. I also buy from oriental trading co. the sombreros.

    Before the fiesta we cut tissue paper rectangles like you do snowflakes and string them to the ceiling for decorations.

    I have many parent helpers that day. It usually takes the whole morning.
