Tissue paper flowers and grass skirts

Continuing with the Hawaiian luau we had on Monday, we also made some tissue paper flowers and grass skirts. First we got some green tissue paper and cut slits all the way to the top except for a couple of inches at the top. Then we tucked it in to the bottoms of their suits.

Next we piled layers of tissue paper traced a circle from a plate, cut out the circle and folded them in a fan and wrapped a pipe cleaner around it and pulled each layer up to form a flower. We wrapped those around their ankles.

After we did this, we turned up the Hawaiian music (thank you internet) and danced around. We also did a limbo contest.

Supplies needed:
tissue paper
pipe cleaners
