Day of the Dead Collages

The day after Halloween is full of tired yet over sugared children.  So we had fun with Day of the Dead collages.  I found a great worksheet with skeleton pieces (on Pinterest of course). They fit on 12X18 paper and then the students chose accessories.  We started by reviewing the traditions of this Mexican holiday, November 1st & 2nd, and looking at examples of decoration and crafts.  The decorations are mostly skeletons but covered in colorful patterns.
