Your students will love making these paper catrinas/calacas (dressed skeletons) as part of your theme on Day of the Dead! Kids can choose to make a girl or boy (or both!), using our skull template and background. Kids can decorate the skulls and make paper cloths, embellish them with tissue paper, ribbon, scrapbooking embellishments and more to personalize their catrina. What a fun way to learn about this incredible holiday!
