This Day of the Dead Skulls activity & project also includes:
El Dia De La Muertos or Day of the Dead is a wonderful Mexican tradition that celebrates loved ones who have passed away. Children get a chance to create unique skulls out of clay, based on traditional designs. A wooden stylus is used to impress the designs into the clay; they are then painted and even fired. The activity provides four additional ideas or ways to connect the art project to academic content.
