I have been trying to decide what to call these... sugar skulls or calacas? I was intending to add bones for a neck and shoulders, but we are out of time, so I guess... Sugar Skulls! My 1st graders paint by traveling around the room. One or two colors per table with a set of paintbrushes in each cup. I give them about 2 minutes per table.... and before you know it they look like these! This was a "guided drawing", I told them what to paint at first to get the face started and then let them go! Fun to teach!
