2nd Grade – Calacas/Calaveras Portraits

Day of the Dead Calacas Portraits can be created so many ways!  I have two versions here.  My favorite is the one right below.  My students start by trace and cut a skull pattern and then cut flower eyes, nose and teeth with construction.

A black outline pulls out the face a bit more and balances the black on the sombrero!

Another version with skulls decorated like sugar skulls and glitter on the sombrero.
