Decorate your Day of the Dead bulletin board with these creative sugar skulls. Fill up your art sub plan folder with no-prep, fuss-free art projects that pair well with other Spanish activities. Great for Spanish, Art, and Social Studies teachers wanting to "paint" on a dime using markers like paints but can also work simply using colored pencils, crayons, and markers. Perfect early finishers activities where students follow a directed drawing handout to create their Dia de los Muertos sugar skull.
QUALITY ART LESSONS
Each game board has been digitally designed and therefore prints crisp and clear, unlike hand-drawn resources which don't hold up well to re-printing. Additionally, all of the drawings are easier on the eyes of students with visual impairments as it's harder to decipher the faint lines from hand-drawn sketches. And lastly, each art game includes step-by-step photos that are detailed and clear, making it easier for students to understand each part of the art process.

DAY OF THE DEAD / DIA DE LOS MUERTOS GAME DIRECTIONS
You will design a Dia de los Muertos skull by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.
First, trace the skull onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Next, roll the die to select an eye from the first column. Roll the die again to choose a nose and once more to pick a mouth. Then, roll twice to decide which two decorations you’ll be drawing from the fourth column. Lastly, roll twice again to pick two decorations from the fifth column. Design your skull using symmetry, placing some design elements on opposites sides of the face.
Using washable markers, outline everything. Dip a small brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker lines to paint in the shapes. Allow each area to dry slightly before moving on to a neighboring area of the design. If you’re short on time, design directly onto the print out from page 4 and color with dry media such as markers, crayons, and colored pencils. Once dry, outline all the designs, thin lines, and details using permanent black marker. Lastly, cut it out.
