Activity - Vejigante Paper Puppets, Masks & Hand Fans 

Create a Vejigante-inspired paper puppet, mask, or fan! During the activity, learn about the culture of Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Cuba. A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations, mainly seen during Carnival time. Traditional colors of the Vejigantes were green, yellow, and red or red and black. The term vejigante derives from the words vejiga (bladder) and gigante (giant) due to custom of blowing up and painting cow bladders. The masks are often linked to festivals that continue today, especially in Loíza and Ponce (Puerto Rico). The activity will be conducted in English and Spanish for an enriching bilingual experience.
