19 Oct 1st Grade – Day of the Dead Skeletons
First Graders want in on the Day of the Dead celebration too! I have done these skeletons in several different ways over the years. Here are three variations of the same idea.
Backgrounds – Anything you want!!! I like the skeletons on purple, magenta and black paper best. Flowers of some type are necessary, I have printed with foam stamps, made simple cut paper flowers and painted flowers. Whatever you are in the mood for!
Skeletons – Students create a sugar skull with a 3×4 piece of thick tag or watercolor paper. Then I pass out 1×12 strips of thick watercolor paper, (my scraps left over from other projects). Students cut the length of the strip and than cut bones!
