Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Paper Mâché Masks

I know Day of the Dead is celebrated over November 1&2 but it was just after Cinco De Mayo that I found inspiration for our paper mâché masks this year. Every year I pick a different culture to study and the masks the make and why they are made. During the Day of the Dead, these sugar skulls are made from sugar as a way to make the celebration less scary for the children. The art on these skills use bright colors in simple shapes and lines that I thought would look fantastic on their masks. I love paper mâché but sometimes even my messiest artists won’t touch the sticky stuff while other cover their hands in it and ask for more! Here are some pics I was able to get before covering my phone with glue.
